Multilayer mirrors (MLM) with narrow spectral bandwidth are important for X-ray spectroscopy and imaging
experiments in order to improve the spectral resolution. To overcome the bandwidth limit of conventional
multilayers, single order lamellar multilayer grating (LMG) is one of the most promising methods. Driven by the
high resolution spectroscopy for the plasma diagnosis at E=~1keV, single order LMG based on MoSi2/Si multilayer
is developed. The multilayer period is 5.0 nm, with the Si thickness ratio of 0.6. An LMG with 600 nm grating
period and 1:2 line-to-space ratio is designed. As it works at the single order diffraction regime, the 0th order peak
reflectance (in theory) of the LMG is 45.4% at E=1.2 keV, which is the same as the multilayer mirror. The
bandwidth can be reduced by 3 times compared to the planar multilayer. To demonstrate this LMG structure,
MoSi2/Si multilayers have been deposited using direct current magnetron sputtering. Deep reactive ion etching
technique is under optimization in order to produce the multilayer grating structure with a high aspect-ratio of
