Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics systems have proven their efficiency for obtaining high resolution images in the field of large astronomical telescopes. The same techniques can be applied to correct x-ray mirror shapes. The paper describes the principle of an adaptive x-ray mirror system (mirror architecture, measurement subassembly, control unit). In the second part, first results obtained during the design study of the ESRF adaptive x-ray mirror are given. The possibility of achieving cylindrical or elliptical mirror surfaces using adaptive optics techniques are suggested.
