The most severe problems in the recording of x-ray holograms have been overcome and the investigation of Fraunhofer holograms extended to the x-ray region. An in-line Fraunhofer hologram was made of a 5.9-µ-diam, glass fiber using beryllium x rays (114 Å) produced in a scanning electron-probe microanalyzer. A magnified real image of the fiber was reconstructed from the negative hologram using He-Ne laser light. A lateral magnification of approximately 9X was obtained in the two-step imaging process. An analysis of the x-ray source, recorded hologram, and reconstructed real image is presented.
