Abstract

This paper covers the various techniques that are currently being used and developed to fabricate grazing incidence X-ray optics for the energy range from about 0.2 keV to 20 keV. Included will be diamond turning, thin foils, epoxy/carbon fiber replication, electroforming replication, and float glass/Kirkpatrick-Baez techniques.
