A new imaging detector for EUV or soft-X-ray radiation based on optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) of lithium fluoride (LiF) films or crystals is presented. The first micro-radiography images of biological samples and of meshes obtained on LiF using a laser-plasma source or an X-ray laser are shown, and (up to now) a resolution better than one micron is demonstrated. The dependence of the coloration density vs the deposited X-ray dose is considered and the advantages of this new diagnostic technique for both coherent and non-coherent EUV sources, compared with CCDs detectors, photographic films and photoresists are discussed. This new detector is extremely suitable for laser plasmas and for X-ray lasers sources.

Abstract

A new imaging detector for EUV or soft-X-ray radiation based on optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) of lithium fluoride (LiF) films or crystals is presented. The first micro-radiography images of biological samples and of meshes obtained on LiF using a laser-plasma source or an X-ray laser are shown, and (up to now) a resolution better than one micron is demonstrated. The dependence of the coloration density vs the deposited X-ray dose is considered and the advantages of this new diagnostic technique for both coherent and non-coherent EUV sources, compared with CCDs detectors, photographic films and photoresists are discussed. This new detector is extremely suitable for laser plasmas and for X-ray lasers sources.
