Paper Abstract

A new device for rapid non-contact characterization of roughness spatial distribution of flat surfaces is developed. Its operational principle is based on the strong dependence on roughness of the intensity of x-rays reflected from a superpolished surface. This effect may be used to obtain a two-dimensional map of the roughness spatial distribution for flat surface with a rms. roughness height of the order of one nanometre. The key components of this device are a precision mechanical one- dimensional scanning stage, a parabolic collimator with vacuum beam path, and a temperature stabilized cooled x-ray linear detector array.
