We present the design and test of a large aperture linear Fresnel zone plate (FZP) as a condensing lens for hard X-rays. The FZP is made of Si and is defined by electron beam lithography and chemical wet etching of <110> oriented silicon substrates. The central zone is 75 μm wide, the outermost lines have a width of 0.35 μm, and the structures have a height of 10 μm. These parameters result in an optimal focusing distance of 9 m, a phase shift of π, and a diffraction efficiency of about 30% at 7.3 keV. We have tested the FZP at the Anomalous Scattering Beamline (ID01) of the ESRF. The FZP was inserted in the vacuum chamber in the Optics Hutch at 38.5 m from the source and 9 m from the sample. We have studied the dependence of beam size and gain as a function of energy in the range from 7 to 8.5 keV. We found the optimum energy range as 7.2-7.4 keV, where the focused beam width was 100 μm and the experimental gain was 9.2, for an expected theoretical value of 9.6.
