• Correcting lateral chromatic aberrations in non-monochromatic X-ray microscopy 

      Falch, Ken Vidar; Detlefs, Carsten; Di Michiel, Marco; Snigireva, Irina; Snigirev, Anatoly; Mathiesen, Ragnvald (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Lateral chromatic aberration in microscopy based on refractive optics may be reduced significantly by adjustments to the illumination scheme. By taking advantage of a broadened bandwidth illumination, the proposed scheme ...

      Hard X-ray transmission microscopy based on refractive X-ray optics can be employed as a tool in material science to investigate buried-in microstructures in two or three dimensions with spatial resolution approaching 100 ...
    • Investigation of glitches induced by single-crystal diamond compound refractive lenses based on crystal orientation 

      Zhang, Qiuyuan; Polikarpov, Maxim; Nataliya, Klimova; Larsen, Helge Bøvik; Mathiesen, Ragnvald; Emerich, Hermann; Thorkildsen, Gunnar; Snigireva, Irina; Snigirev, Anatoly (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Single-crystal diamond is considered as an ideal material for compound refractive lenses (usually abbreviated to “CRLs”) mainly due to its stability when bathed in strong X-ray radiation. Since CRLs come into operation by ...
