We describe the implementation of an 8 keV microscope that operates with a conventional x-ray source in our lab. Samples are scanned pixel-by-pixel through a focused x-ray spot produced by a phase-modulating zone plate fabricated with the sputtered-sliced technique. The micro- focused x-ray source uses a Cu target and produces 8 keV photons that are detected with a Si(Li) spectroscopy system. The microscope currently achieves 10 µm resolution.
