Paper Abstract

An automated figure formation system for Kirkpatrick-Baez geometry grazing incidence X-ray mirrors is described. The system is based on an IBM PC/XT microcomputer and utilizes primarily commercially available equipment. The mirror assemblies currently being manufactured for the LAMAR experiment attain an angular resolution of ~30" (50% power diameter) on axis. The angular resolution is limited by the float glass used for the mirror plates, not the figure formation process.
