The future high brightness synchrotron sources will permit development of x-ray imaging techniques with sub-10 nm resolution and unprecedented capabilities, including 3D tomography for imaging biological specimens and studying crack initiation and propagation in materials science, spectromicroscopy for chemical state mapping of soil and environmental samples, and microdiffraction for mapping of crystallography phases and textures. As in the optical spectrum, the development of suitable lenses with the required optical property is of critical importance to realize these capabilities.
