Abstract

We have measured the intensity profile and transmission of x rays focused by a series of biconcave spherical unit lenses fabricated from beryllium. The use of beryllium extends the range of operation of compound refractive lenses, improving transmission, aperture size, and gain. The compound refractive lens was composed of 160 biconcave unit lenses, each with a radius of curvature of 1.9 mm. Two-dimensional focusing with a gain of 1.5 was obtained at 6.5 keV with a focal length of 93 cm. The effective aperture of the compound refractive lens was measured as 600 μm , with 9% peak transmission.
