Abstract

The efficient coloration of LiF material, in the form of bulk and films, by EUV and soft X-rays emitted by a laser-plasma source is demonstrated. The short penetration depth of soft-X-rays is exploited to obtain high spatial resolution luminescent patterns while the high dynamic range of proportionality between X-ray dose and coloration is exploited for using LiF as image detector in micro-radiography and soft X-ray microscopy applications.
