Development of the present-day technologies of manufacturing deep structures with submicron elements based on the deep x- ray lithography method with the usage of synchrotron radiation. Microelectronics used x-ray patterns with a 1.0 micrometers golden masking covering on different-type membranes become of unfit in this case both from the angle of contrast and from the standpoint of radiation and heat stability. X- ray patterns with the membrane on the base of tantalum 2 micrometers thick, that are high contrasting as to synchrotron radiation with wavelength of 0.2 to 1.0 nm, have been developed and manufactured. A set of pores 0.7 micrometers in diameter 1.5 micrometers apart in two directions was formed as the topological pattern.
