Janusz Mikolajczyk, Jacek Wojtas & Rafal Rakowski
Soft x-ray radiation is being widely applied in many branches of science and technology. It can be assumed, that this radiation fills the gap between optical- and electron microscopy. Soft x-ray technology showed its attractiveness for diagnostics of living cells and biological tissues. The main task of these diagnostics is observation of cells of typical dimensions of 20-40 nm or even less ones (DNA structures). Currently available diagnostic technologies do not provide a sufficient resolution...
