FLASH HOLOGRAPHIC MICROSCOPY USING A COMPACT EXTREME ULTRAVIOLET TABLE TOP LASER


Abstract: We recorded the oscillation of sub- micron pillars using time resolved extreme ultraviolet Fourier transform Holography. The source utilized was a 46.9 nm tabletop capillary discharge with an EUV wavelength of 46.9nm, which provided large flux of coherent illumination. The bright illumination allowed for Fresnel Zone plate to produce a reference and object beam to create the hologram. The reference wave is created by the first order focus while a central opening in the zone plate illuminates the object. Flash imaging technique allowed for imaging of oscillating nano-pillars at MHz frequencies.
