What is a stxm

What is a STXM?

Scanning Transmission X-ray Microscopy

  • How is it different from an optical microscope?

EPU

  • Zone plate- OSA

  • Energy tunability- Polarization control (EPU)

  • Raster scan- Synchrotron radiation


What is a stxm1

What is a STXM?

Scanning Transmission X-ray Microscopy

  • Zone plates

    • Fresnel diffraction

    • E-beam litho

    • Spatial Resolution Limit


What is a stxm2

What is a STXM?

Scanning Transmission X-ray Microscopy

  • Order Sorting Aperture (OSA)

    • Requires careful alignment with Zone plate


What is it good for
