Abstract
Imaging microscopy with short pulse (200 ps) x-ray lasers offers the opportunity of high resolution three-dimensional imaging of specimens in an aqueous environment without the blurring effects associated with natural motion. As a first step toward this goal we have performed imaging experiments which clearly resolved 500 angstrom features on a gold test pattern. In addition, we have taken images of dried biological specimens as a basis for comparison in future wet specimen imaging. The results of these experiments are described. We also discuss some of the alignment problems involved in doing x-ray microscopy with low repetition rate systems where in situ focusing of the imaging optics is not practical as single shot exposures can alter the specimen.
