Paper Abstract

Bimorph mirrors are used on many synchrotron beamlines to focus or collimate light. They are highly adaptable because not only their overall figure but also their local slope errors can be corrected. However, the optimization procedure is complex. At Diamond Light Source, highly repeatable and accurate pencil beam measurements are used to determine a mirror's slope errors. These data are then used by automated scripts to calculate the necessary corrections. This procedure may be applied to any type of active mirror, but for hard X-ray mirrors, diffraction from the slits must be considered.
