Paper Abstract

The SXO project was a UK based consortium of seven institutions investigating active/adaptive X-ray optics for both large and small scale applications. The emphasis during the SXO work was to develop methods for the integration of thin piezoelectric devices on to the back surface of thin shell X-ray optics. Here we continue from the SXO work and turn our attention to the problem of mounting these optics into a nest of Wolter-I shells using rigid mounting systems. We discuss a possible complete mounting scheme and the constraints and limits of rigid mounting schemes. The design and organisation of the piezoelectric devices on the optic and the ability of the actuators to correct for figure errors in the shells within these schemes is also discussed.
