30-lens interferometer for high energy X-rays

30-lens interferometer was designed, manufactured and tested at X-ray energies from 30 to 65 keV. The interferometer was used to measure an effective source (FWHM) of 15 μm from the interference pattern recorded at the fundamental Talbot distance.

Large-aperture prism-array lens for high-energy X-ray focusing

A new kind of prism-array lens for high-energy X-ray focusing is designed, fabricated by LIGA technology and measured using the knife-scan method.

Application of an ePix100 detector for coherent scattering using a hard X-ray free-electron laser

A prototype unit of the ePix100 camera was used for coherent scattering studies at the Linac Coherent Light Source. The performance of the detector was tested over a broad range of incident flux from 23 down to 0.01 photons per pixel on average.

New figuring model based on surface slope profile for grazing-incidence reflective optics


Accepted 28 June 2016

Utilizing broadband X-rays in a Bragg coherent X-ray diffraction imaging experiment


Accepted 21 June 2016

Real-time image-content-based beamline control for smart 4D X-ray imaging

A flexible experiment workflow system based on high-throughput data acquisition and processsing for feedback-driven and online imaging experiments is presented.

Accepted 17 June 2016

Diamond beamline I07: a beamline for surface and interface diffraction

A beamline is described for grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction at Diamond Light Source that houses two experimental hutches, the first housing a large multi-circle diffractometer on which a wide variety of sample environments can be mounted and the second with an ultrahigh-vacuum system on the diffractometer to enable in situ studies of molecular beam epitaxy. Techniques available include X-ray reflectivity, surface X-ray diffraction, grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering, grazing-incidence wide-angle X-ray scattering and grazing-incidence diffraction.

X-ray third-order nonlinear plane-wave Bragg-case dynamical diffraction effects in a perfect crystal. Erratum


Accepted 8 June 2016

X-Tream quality assurance in synchrotron X-ray microbeam radiation therapy

The ability of a high-resolution silicon-based single strip detector to perform pre-treatment quality control in microbeam radiation therapy is investigated. The study is based on in-air measurements of energy deposition in silicon by arrays of microbeams. Special attention was dedicated to the detection of the multi-slit collimator misalignment, the device in charge of the spatial fractionation of the primary beam into an array of microbeams.

Pink-beam focusing with a one-dimensional compound refractive lens


Accepted 7 June 2016

Hard X-ray phase-contrast tomography of non-homogeneous specimens: grating interferometry versus propagation-based imaging

Laser-pump/X-ray-probe experiments with electrons ejected from a Cu(111) target: space-charge acceleration

Electron spectroscopy in laser-pump/X-ray probe experiments is used to characterize electron dynamics, with an emphasis on space-charge acceleration.
