Nanofocused X-rays are indispensable because they can provide high spatial resolution and high sensitivity for X-ray nanoscopy/spectroscopy. A focusing system with reflective optics is one of the most promising methods for producing nanofocused X-rays due to its high efficiency and beams size. So, far we realize efficient hard X-ray focusing with a beam size of 25nm. Our next project is realization of sub-10nm hard X-ray focusing. Here, we describe the design of the graded multilayer mirror and evaluation method for hard X-ray focused beam.© (2007) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
