Accepted 26 October 2014

Direct nano-scale patterning of Ag films using hard X-ray induced oxidation

S. Y. Lee, H. C. Kang and D. Y. Noh

Synopsis: Direct fabrication of metal lines in nano-scale was achieved utilizing hard X-ray induced oxidation. Ag and Au/Ag nano lines as small as 21 nm width were fabricated by the hard X-ray patterning.

X-ray diffraction strain analysis of a single axial InAs1-xPx nanowire segment

M. Keplinger, B. Mandl, D. Kriegner, V. Holý, L. Samuelsson, G. Bauer, K. Deppert and J. Stangl

Synopsis: Strain analysis of an axial InAs1-xPx hetero-segment in an InAs nanowire using nano-focused X-ray diffraction is presented.


Accepted 16 October 2014

Simultaneous X-ray diffraction and phase-contrast imaging for investigating material deformation mechanisms during high-rate loading

M. Hudspeth, N. Parab, Z. Guo, W. Chen, T. Sun, K. Fezzaa and S. Luo


Accepted 16 October 2014

X-ray phase-contrast computed tomography visualizes the microstructure and degradation profile of implanted biodegradable scaffolds after spinal cord injury

K. Takashima, M. Hoshino, K. Uesugi, N. Yagi, S. Matsuda, A. Nakahira, N. Osumi, M. Kohzuki and H. Onodera


Accepted 2 October 2014

Functionalized synchrotron in-line phase-contrast computed tomography: a novel approach for simultaneous qu­antification of structural alterations and localization of barium-labelled alveolar macrophages within mouse lung samples

C. Dullin, S. dal Monego, E. Larsson, S. Mohammadi, M. Krenkel, C. Garrovo, S. Biffi, A. Lorenzon, A. Markus, J. Napp, T. Salditt, A. Accardo, F. Alves and G. Tromba

Synopsis: This study presents an approach to increase the sensitivity of lung computed tomography (CT) imaging by utilizing in-line phase contrast CT in combination with single-distance phase-retrieval algorithms and a dedicated image-processing regime. As demonstrated here, functional CT imaging can be achieved for the assessment of both structural alterations in asthmatic mouse lung tissue and the accumulation pattern of instilled barium-sulfate-labelled macrophages in comparison with healthy controls.


Accepted 2 October 2014

Large-acceptance diamond planar refractive lenses manufactured by laser cutting

M. Polikarpov, I. Snigireva, J. Morse, V. Yunkin, S. Kuznetsov and A. Snigirev

Synopsis: For the first time, planar X-ray refractive lenses have been fabricated by laser micromachining in 300 µm-thick single-crystal diamond. Tests at the ESRF ID06 beamline showed that the manufacturing quality is adequate to use such lenses as beam-conditioning elements at synchrotron radiation sources.


Accepted 1 October 2014
