Paper Abstract

Roughness and waviness on mirrors for use in grazing-incidence optical systems intended for the extreme ultraviolet and x-ray regions affect both the focusing properties of the mirrors and the scattered light they produce. The most important surface spatial wave-lengths of the roughness are in the 1- to 100-μm range and are easily measurable using conventional optical and mechanical techniques. Descriptions of some of these techniques will be given along with examples of measurements made on very smooth polished optical surfaces that are comparable to those used as grazing-incidence optics.
