Novel microstructures manufactured with high precision and reproducibility are proposed for high-resolution collimators in flat crystal soft X-ray monochromators for plasma spectroscopy. The newly developed technique for this type of collimator is based on surface structuring of foils using profiled microdiamonds. Results of X-ray tests of a microstructure collimator demonstrate that the predicted angular resolution of 5000 at a transmission of about 0.3 can be obtained.
