Abstract

W∕C and Co / SiO 2 multilayer gratings have been fabricated by depositing a multilayer coating on the surface of laminar-type holographic master gratings. The diffraction efficiency was measured by reflectometers in the energy region of 0.6 8.0   keV at synchrotron radiation facilities as well as with an x-ray diffractometer at 8.05   keV . The Co / SiO 2 and W∕C multilayer gratings showed peak diffraction efficiencies of 0.47 and 0.38 at 6.0 and 8.0   keV , respectively. To our knowledge, the peak efficiency of the W∕C multilayer grating is the highest measured with hard x rays. The diffraction efficiency of the Co / SiO 2 multilayer gratings was higher than that of the W∕C multilayer grating in the energy range of 2.5 6.0   keV . However, it decreased significantly in the energy above the K absorption edge of Co ( 7.71   keV ) . For the Co / SiO 2 multilayer grating, the measured diffraction efficiencies agreed with the calculated curves assuming a rms roughness of 1   nm .
