Paper Abstract

An ellipsoidal mirror is a promising type of X-ray mirror, because it can focus X-rays to nanometer size with a very large aperture and no chromatic aberration. However, ideal ellipsoidal mirrors have not yet been realized by any manufacturing method. This is partly because there is no evaluation method for its surface figure profile. In this paper, we propose and develop a method for measuring surface figure profile of ellipsoidal mirrors using phase retrieval. An optical design for soft X-ray focusing, the employed phase retrieval method and an experimental optical system specialized for wavefront measurement using a He-Ne laser are reported.
