In this paper we present the current work and experience with using microfocus x-ray generator and commercial CCD camera for x- ray imaging purpose. There is a need in laboratories for the development of imaging methods approaching synchrotron radiation sources, where the brilliance of radiation is on very high-level. Generally, there is no continuous access to synchrotron facilities. Several synchrotron radiation laboratories allocate the access via a proposal system. Thus the time for synchrotron radiation experiments seldom exceeds more than 1-2 weeks per year, which restricts its application to a few selected experiments. Even in future, the routine characterization of samples will be performed mainly at the experimenter’s home laboratories . In this contribution we show that with the present set-up it is possible to achieve the spatial resolution down to 3 μm and with the appropriate geometry a phase contrast images are observable.
