Paper Abstract

A demonstration x-ray optic has been produced by diamond turning and replication techniques that could revolutionize the fabrication of advanced mirror assemblies. The prototype optic was developed as part of the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility, Spectrographic project. The initial part of the project was aimed at developing and testing the replication technique so that it could potentially be used for the production of the entire mirror array comprised of up to 50 individual mirror shells.
