Paper Abstract

A slatted mirror is a unique and crucial component in a particular design for an astronomical X-ray interferometer (Willingale 20041). The slats must be thin, < 300 μm, flat and co-planar to a very high precision. We describe the manufacture and characterisation of a prototype slatted mirror produced using a modified form of Silicon pore optics technology.
