Imaging of micro- and nano-structures of opaque samples is demonstrated using hard X-rays. Two different methods are employed with an instrument recently built at the beamline 34 ID-C at the Advanced Photon Source. In-line phase contrast micro-imaging has been performed with highly coherent radiation. For the characterisation of structures as small as 50 nm, a hard X-ray microscope has been built. These complementary techniques cover a large range of length-scales.
