A second NanoMAX experimental station relying on Fresnel Zone Plate (FZP) focusing is currently in the design phase. In its mature state, it will provide an X-ray beam focused down to a 10 nm spot. The FZP endstation will rely on active positioning at the nanometer scale using optical interferometry and will provide a single rotation axis for tomographic measurements.
The FZP station will feature a large pixel detector in the forward direction for diffraction and coherent imaging methods. A multi-element Silicon Drift Diode X-ray fluorescence detector will be used for elemental mapping. The station will not allow much sample flexibility due to extreme demands on stability and limited sample space. A first generation will be built to operate in air, while a second generation providing in-vacuum, cryogenic capabilities is planned for the future.
