Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics systems have proved their efficiency to obtain high resolution images in he field of large astronomical telescopes. The same technics 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 a second part, first results obtained during the design study of the ESRF adaptive X-ray mirror are given. The possibility to achieve cylindrical or elliptical mirror surfaces using adaptive optics technics are suggested.
