Paper Abstract

A need for a conical grazing incidence x-ray mirror was identified for a virus crystallography beam line at Argonne National Laboratory. This mirror would allow a synchrotron light source to be conveniently focused to an experimental station, thereby providing a working distance suited to the practical limitations of the experimental hall. The use of such a mirror was first verified by optical design analysis, which, in turn, prompted the development of special optical fabrication and testing procedures validated by the successful manufacture of a 1/3 size surrogate optical component. The successful conclusion of the developmental work then led to the manufacture of an internally cooled mirror of single crystal silicon, 1000 mm in length, having a cone angle of 0.957 milliradian. This paper discusses the construction of the full size mirror and the results obtained using second generation refinements of the previously demonstrated optical fabrication procedures.
