2 Long Term ISS Utilisation



5 XEUS will have a very large collecting area and fine angular resolution of 2..5" so very light-weight novel X-ray optics is to be developed

6 Czech participation ESA PECS project accepted for funding from Dec 2006, PI L. Pina Reflex, CI ASU, VSCHT, FJFI CVUT. Duration 4 years. Preliminary results described in this talk were obtaained WITHOUT any funding thanks to the enthuniasmus of participants.

7 Our approach to X-ray optics based on Si wafers
the Si wafers parameters are optimized already at the production stage the Si wafers are shaped to precise optical surfaces/shapes the internal stress is minimized. Important. The standard Si wafers are not stress-free. the shaped/bent Si wafers are stacked to form the Multi Foil Optics (MFO)

8 Measuring the quality of flat Si wafers
the production of Si wafers is a complex process. The recent Si wafers are optimized for semiconductor industry but not for X-ray optics applications we use Si wafers already at production optimized for X-ray optics application precise measurements and optimization already at production stage are important for X-ray optics based on Si wafers

19 SHAPING OF SI WAFERS the goal is to precisely shape Si wafers to desired optical shape and to remove the internal stress 3 different technologies tested (I, II, III) so far, Si wafers have been shaped to test cylindrical and parabolic surfaces both in 1 and in 2 dimensions

28 SUMMARY Si wafers Interdisciplinary co-operation (team with 11 members from 5 Institutions) created within the Czech Republic with experienced teams including researchers at the large company producing Si wafers. Si wafers successfully bent to desired geometry by 3 different techniques with PV ~ 1 mm in the best case. The bending before stacking is advantageous eg. to avoid increase of internal stress and to allow very long-term stability of the mirror array. The production of Si wafers very complex, need to modify and optimize the parameters at the production stage.

alternative glass technologies represent glass forming avoiding heat

30 The parameters of the GTF may be improved by:
optimization of the glass material (limited) optimization of the mandrel material/design optimization of the GTF process optimization of the GTF temperature and duration Expectations (goals) microroughness of float - glass not degraded ~ 0.5 nm RMS deviation PV < 0.02 mm

31 Various approaches in Glass Thermal Forming
low-cost design needed (the goal is to produce very large number of shells at a low cost) expensive production/material are to be avoided the mandrel material/design is important recent design: proprietary technology (composite)

40 SUMMARY GTF surface microroughness not degraded down to measuring accuracy ~ few 0.1 nm profile deviations 0.7 µm (peak-valley) in the best case recently, expectations < 0.02 µm sensitive to T and other parameters of the TGF process = need for optimization sensitive to mandrel design / material / process => need for optimization
