Abstract

To the best of our knowledge, the first direct measurement of the dispersive part of the refractive index is performed at extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) wavelengths, where absorption is higher as compared with hard-x-ray and visible wavelengths. A novel diffractive optical element that combines the functions of a grating and a zone plate is fabricated with Fourier optical techniques and employed here for the first time at EUV/soft-x-ray wavelengths. Both the real and the imaginary parts of the complex refractive indices are measured directly by this technique without recourse to Kramers–Kronig transformations. Data for Al and Ni in the vicinity of their L and M edges, respectively, are presented as first examples of this technique.

  11. The XOR pattern is obtained first by pixelization of the binary grating and the zone plate. Each pixel is 1 for transmission and 0 for absorption. The two pixelized patterns are then overlapped and compared pixel by pixel, producing the resulting XOR pattern; i.e., at each pixel position, if the pixel values of the grating and the zone plate are the same (both 0's or both 1's), the value of the corresponding pixel on the XOR pattern is 0. Otherwise, the value of the corresponding pixel on the XOR pattern is 1.
