Researchers from IKBFU Develop New Ultra-compact Transfocator for Modern Synchrotron Radiation Sources
Recently, a Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, which belongs to a publishing house Wiley-Blackwell (International Union of Crystallography, New Jersey, USA), has published a scientific article under the title «CRL-based ultra-compact transfocator for X-ray focusing and microscopy». Co-authors of the study are the researchers from the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (Kaliningrad, Russia) and their colleagues from European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Hamburg, Germany) and European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France).
Dmitry Zverev, a researcher of X-ray Optics Laboratory (IKBFU):
A new ultra-compact transfocator (UCTF) can be used for accurate measurements of the emittance of the synchrotron sources of the third and fourth generations.
