We have been working on 3 separate projects that together will give us the ability to make 1 arc second, light weightWolter I optics that work above 40 keV. The three separate tasks are: (a) plasma spraying of metal-coated micro-balloons; (b) coating of the inside of Wolter I mirrors, (c) actuator designs for improving figure quality.We give a progress report on our work on all three areas.
