Development of microfocusing optics for scanning microscopy and image forming optics for imaging microscopy are now in progress in SPring-8 by using varieties of optical devices: refractive lens, total reflection mirrors. Fresnel zone plates, and sputtered-sliced Fresnel one plates. Spatial resolution of 100 nm has been achieved in scanning microscopy using highly coherent X-ray beam at a 248 m-long beamline 20XU and FZP focusing optics. Recent results on development of optical systems are described.
