Paper Abstract

Flight mirrors for the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer satellite are currently under fabrication. The grazing incidence metal mirrors are Wolter-Schwarzschild Type I and II and are figured by diamond turning. Imaging performance is excellent, with the figure after polishing for the best mirror being such that the full width-half maximum is 1.0 arc seconds and the half energy width is 8 arc seconds measured at visible wavelengths. Surface finish, as determined from scattering measurements in the extreme ultraviolet, is about 20Å rms.
