24 May 2011 Extremely lightweight x-ray optics based on thin substrates
Author Affiliations +
We report on recent progress with development of astronomical X-ray optics based on bent Si wafers. Recent efforts with Si wafers have been focused on new forming technologies such as method of deposition of thin layers. The role of substrates quality in performance of final mirror arrays, as required by large future space X-ray astronomy experiments was also studied.
