Paper Abstract

The efficient fabrication of large grazing incidence mirrors can often impose special needs for fabrication and coating equipment, facilities, and raw materials. The economic realization of such an optic can be readily accomplished through close interactions between the mirror user, the fabricator, and the manufacturer of the raw material designated as the mirror substrate. The manufacture and delivery of a flat 1.4 meter long synchrotron mirror for use at x-ray wavelength is used to provide an example of effective interactions between participating entities. The fabrication, testing, and coating processes are described and the results obtained are presented in the form of measurement data for surface figure and surface roughness.
