Motivated by the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade (APS-U), a new hard X-ray microscope called “Velociprobe” has been recently designed and built for fast ptychographic imaging with high spatial resolution. We are addressing the challenges of high-resolution and fast scanning with novel hardware/stage designs, new positioner control designs, and new data acquisition strategies, including the use of high bandwidth interferometric measurements. The use of granite, air-bearing-supported stages provides the necessary long travel ranges for coarse motion to accommodate real samples and variable energy operation while remaining highly stable during fine scanning. Scanning the low-mass zone plate enables high-speed high-precision motion of the probe over the sample. Our primary goal is to use this instrument to demonstrate sub-10 nm spatial resolution ptychography over a 1-square-micron area in under 10 seconds. We have also designed the instrument to take advantage of the upgraded source when the APS-U is completed. This presentation will describe the unique designs and characteristics of this instrument, and some preliminary data obtained during the instrument commission.
