Abstract

The construction of a 1.3GeV synchrotron radiation storage ring in Taiwan (Taiwan Light Source (TLS)) began recently (Yen, 1986). The photon energy (critical energy of 0.99keV) of the TLS without insertion device will cover the near infrared, visible light, ultraviolet and vacuum ultraviolet as well as soft x-ray spectra. The synchrotron storage ring, when completed, will provide useful photons for various x-ray imaging work including x-ray microscopy. In anticipation of the commission of the synchrotron, we have built a stationary target x-ray source for some initial work on x-ray contact imaging. The stationary anode x-ray source was chosen for its simplicity and reliability. The soft x-ray source had been set up by the middle of August, 1986. After the source was tested, two biological specimens were exposed to the source.
