Abstract

Coherent radiation from undulator beamlines has been used to directly measure the real and imaginary parts of the index of refraction of several materials at both extreme-ultraviolet and soft-x-ray wavelengths. Using the XOR interferometer, we measure the refractive indices of silicon and ruthenium, essential materials for extreme-ultraviolet lithography. Both materials are tested at wavelength ( 13.4   nm ) and across silicon's L 2 ( 99.8   eV ) and L 3 ( 99.2   eV ) absorption edges. We further extend this direct phase measurement method into the soft-x-ray region, where measurements of chromium and vanadium are performed around their L3 absorption edges at 574.1 and 512.1   eV , respectively. These are the first direct measurements, to our knowledge, of the real part of the index of refraction made in the soft-x-ray region.
