Paper Abstract

We present the fabrication methods, testing and evaluation techniques, and performance results for the mirrors for the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE). Our finest mirror produced to date has a measured half energy width of 8"at optical wavelengths. With a polished nickel surface, the telescope throughput was 35% at 44A and 60% at 256A. The surface roughness is 20 A rms.
