Paper Abstract

We describe a new facility for characterization of the XUV optical performance of multilayer reflectors. Samples are loaded into an ultra-high vacuum, computer-controlled reflectometer consisting of in-vacuum stepper motor translation and rotation stages with relative positioning accuracies of 1µm and 0.1 mdeg, respectively. The reflectometer is used with a laboratory light source which provides collimated, monochromatic radiation from approximately 1800 Å to < 8 Å. The reflectometer is also easily transported for use with synchrotron radiation. Reflectance measurements, using a variety of detectors, can be made from grazing incidence to near-normal incidence, and the reflectometer can be rotated from horizontal to vertical while under vacuum in order to perform polarization-sensitive measurements. In addition to characterizing multilayer reflectors fabricated in our laboratory, the apparatus is well suited for the determination of optical constants using the reflectance versus incidence angle method.
