Abstract

We have fabricated W/B4C multilayers having periods in the range d = 0.8–1.2 nm and measured their soft-x-ray performance near normal incidence in the wavelength range 1.4<l<2.4 nm . By adjusting the fractional layer thickness of W we have produced structures having interface widths ó ~ 0.29 nm (i.e., as determined from normal-incidence reflectometry), thus having optimal soft-x-ray performance. We describe our results and discuss their implications, particularly with regard to the development of short-wavelength normal-incidence x-ray optics.
