We present the operation of a matrix of Fresnel zone plates consisting of 900 individual zone plates. The individual efficiency of the zone plate lenses is close to 30% for λ= 13.7 Å. We discuss the use of such a matrix as an optical element for performing high-resolution neutron imaging (at a sub 50 μm resolution).
