A second NanoMAX experimental station relying on Fresnel Zone Plate (FZP) focusing is currently under development. In its mature state, it will provide an X-ray beam focused down to a 30 nm spot, with a long term goal of 10 nm. 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. Two Silicon Drift Diode X-ray fluorescence detectors will be used for elemental mapping. The station will operate in vacuum and have liquid nitrogen cooling of the sample. First test experiments will take place spring 2022.
