Abstract: We demonstrate a table-top broadband emission water window source based on laser-produced high-Z plasmas. Resonance emission from multiply charged ions merges to produce intense unresolved transition arrays in the 2 to 4 nm region, extending below the carbon K edge (4.37 nm). Arrays resulting from n = 4−4 transitions are overlaid with n = 4−5 emission and shift to shorter wavelength with increasing atomic number. From spectral analysis, a guideline for microscope construction design for single-shot live cell imaging is proposed based on the use of a bismuth plasma source, coupled with multilayer mirror optics.
