Abstract

The development of multilayer mirrors for continual use around the K-absorption edge of carbon (4.4 nm) has been begun. Cobalt oxide (Co3O4), silicon oxide (SiO2), and boron nitride (BN) are found to be suitable for multilayer mirrors on the basis of theoretical calculations for wavelengths around the carbon K-absorption edge region. X-ray reflectivity curves with CuKα 1 x rays of the fabricated Co3O4/SiO2 multilayers have sharp Bragg peaks, and the layer structures evaluated from transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observations are uniform. On the other hand, the Bragg peaks of Co3O4/BN multilayers split, and aggregated Co3O4 is observed. To improve the Co3O4 layer structure, chromium oxide (Cr2O3) was mixed into Co3O4. The mixed oxide layer structure in the Mix/BN multilayer (Mix = Co3O4 + Cr2O3) is relatively uniform, and the Bragg peaks do not split.
