Paper Abstract

Here we report progress toward the fabrication of adaptive or active Si X-ray mirrors via a two step process. The first step is to curve a Si flat and then coat it with Terfenol-D that will allow the shape control via the application of a magnetic field. The goal is to create a mirror whose local (a few mm-length scale) slope can be changed and left for several hours or more. The current work described here was done in on Si to demonstrate the ability to produce the initial curvature, and in parallel, work to on magnetically hard NiCo 5 cm x 5 cm square plus on a glass sample. The glass sample was used a proto-type to model making changes in two different locations on a mirror. The NiCo sample was used to show that a magnetic field can be retained in a magnetically hard substrate such that the magnetically induced stress in the Terfenol-D was able to maintain a deformation for as long as time permitted to make the measurement which was 71 hours.
