Parabolic planar compound refractive lenses (CRLs) made from glassy carbon by means of laser ablation are presented. They have radii of curvatures of 5 and 200 mu m and geometric apertures of 40 and 900 mu m, respectively. The numbers of biconcave elements in the CRLs were 4, 7, and 200. The planar lenses allow formation of a linear focus of length comparable with the depths of their profiles. Usage of two CRLs in a crossed geometry provides formation of two-dimensional focus. The lenses were tested at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility at the bending magnet beam line BM-5. The minimum experimental size of the focus has been achieved as 1.4 mu m.
