Paper Abstract

Large area Mo/Si and W/Si multilayers used as Bragg reflectors for synchrotron radiation in soft and hard x-ray regions are fabricated using a newly developed alternating-material sputter deposition on 4-inch diameter substrates. Measurements using a surface profiler show a thickness uniformity of better than 1 deviation over the whole area of 4-inch diameter substrate. The reflectivity of the multilayers for CuKa radiation agrees well with theoretical calculations which include film surface roughness and interfacial roughness. The soft x-ray reflectivity measuring system consisting of the plane grating monochrometer and the reflectometer was developed. The Mo/Si multilayers consisting of 30 pairs of 2. 7-nm thick molybdenum and 4-nm thick silicon layers has been showed a peak reflectivity of 46 and a full-width at half-maximum value of 0. 56 nm at a wavelength of 13 nm. A double monochromators using this Mo/Si multilayer has a peak reflectivity of 19 and full-width at half-maximum value of 0. 37 nm at the same wavelength. W/Si multilayers consisting of 200 pairs of 1. 4-nm thick tungsten and 2. 9-nm thick silicon layers show a peak reflectivity of 8. 5 at a 2. 5-nm wavelength. These results show that high-quality multilayers for Bragg reflectors for synchrotron radiation can be fabricated by alternating-material sputter deposition. 1.
