Development of a Compact Scanning Transmission X-ray Microscope (STXM) at the Photon Factory
Access this Article
We report a compact scanning transmission X-ray microscope (STXM) newly designed and developed at the Photon Factory. Piezo-driven linear stages are used for all of the coarse stages in the microscope to make the microscope compact, stable, and suitable for use at the endstations of multipurpose beamlines already in operation. Fully digitized control and detection electronics are implemented to realize efficient data acquisition. The performance of the STXM is demonstrated in both imaging and spectroscopic experiments.
