Paper Abstract

Kirkpatrick-Baez (K-B) mirrors [1] are sophisticated x-ray micro- and nano-focusing tools for synchrotron radiation applications. A prototype of a modular x-ray K-B mirror mount system has been designed and tested at an optics testing beamline, 1-BM at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). This compact, costeffective modular mirror mount system is designed to meet challenging mechanical and optical specifications for producing high positioning resolution and stability for various scientific applications with focused hard x-ray beams down to the 100-nanometer scale. The optomechanical design of the modular x-ray K-B mirror mount system as well as the preliminary test results of its precision positioning performance are presented in this paper.
