An imaging x-ray microscope which can take an image by a short single x-ray pulse is important from the point of application for moving biological specimen and to avoid radiation damage . In this paper the design of the optical arrangement of the practical compact imaging x-ray microscope which can take an image by a short single x-ray pulse by using a laser plasma source and a zone plate is presented based on the experimental results. The spatial resolution of 25 nm is feasible by a single x-ray pulse.
