Paper Abstract

This paper covers the various techniques that are currently being used and developed to fabricate grazing incidence x-ray optics for the energy range from about 0.2 to 20 keV. Techniques covered will include diamond turning, thin foils, epoxy/carbon-fiber replication, electroforming replication, and float glass/Kirkpatrick-Baez techniques.
