Fabrication of Ultrathin Bragg Beam Splitter by Plasma Chemical Vaporization Machining

Article Preview

A novel fabrication process was proposed to produce high-quality Bragg beam splitters for hard X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs), which should consist of thin, bend-free, and robust Bragg-case crystals without any defects. A combination of a mechanical process and plasma chemical vaporization machining was employed. High crystalline perfection of the fabricated Si(110) crystal was verified with X-ray topography and rocking curve measurements. In addition, the thickness was evaluated to be 4.4 μm from the fringe period of the measured rocking curve. The crystal can be employed in Bragg beam splitters using the (220) Bragg reflection for X-ray pump-X-ray probe experiments with XFEL sources.
