Paper Abstract

This paper will describe a first order analytical technique for evaluating the Strehl ratio of a system composed of various optical components in a soft x-ray system. The basic elements of the model are to provide budgeting criteria that will permit the maximum energy in the central lobe of a far field distribution. Budgeting components will consist of figure error on the component, thermal distortion for transient and steady-state, pressure ripple for cooled substrates, and energy loss due to scatter and absorption in the coatings and the substrate.
