Paper Abstract

As part of a technological effort for the AXAF program, visible light scatter measurements were made of various mirror samples to determine the surface roughness. The measurements were made to compare with x-ray scatter measurements of the same samples. The data is recorded in a HHDF format described in a doctorate dissertation by James Harvey at the University of Arizona. The total diffuse scatter is calculated using numerical integration techniques and used to estimate the HMS surface roupiness. The technology program is not complete but a summary of the data generated to date is presented.
