Abstract:

THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL ADDRESS THE CRITICAL NEEDS OF X-RAY/UV WAVELENGTH MIRROR TECHNOLOGY BY PROPOSING A NEW FABRICATION TECHNIQUE. CALLED ION ENHANCED MOLECULAR BEAM DEPOSITION, THIS TECHNIQUE IS CAPABLE OF FORMING HIGH REFLECTIVITY OPTICAL ELEMENTS BY VACUUM DEPOSITING ARTIFICIALLY STRUCTURED THIN FILM COATINGS. THIS UNIQUE APPROACH HAS PRECISE PROCESS CONTROL NECESSARY TO FORM STRUCTURALLY PERFECT LAYERS ACCORDING TO DESIGNS THAT WILL BE GENERATED BY COMPUTER MODELLING. THE MANUFACTURABILITY OF THESE OPTICAL ELEMENTS WILL ALSO BE EVALUATED. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL EXTEND THE STATE-OF-THE-ART FABRICATION TECHNIQUE AND COULD LEAD TO MUCH IMPROVED MIRRORTECHNOLOGY.
