thumb Laboratory and synchrotron tests of two dimensional parabolic x ray compound refractive lens made of single crystal diamond  

A team from Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, FSBI TISNCM and the ESRF joined together to design, manufacture and evaluate two-dimensional parabolic compound refractive lenses made of single-crystal diamond. The evaluation was performed with the MetalJet D2 x-ray source from Excillum as well as at ID06 at ESRF. The combination of unique optical and thermal properties makes them well suited as optical elements at x-ray sources with high-heat flux.
