Abstract

In this paper we discuss the fabrication and testing of electroformed replica Wolter I optics made from gold-coated lacquered mandrels. We also discuss testing of gold- and palladium-coated lacquered test flats. X-ray (5 keV for Wolter I mirror and 8-40 keV for test flats) and optical (Wyko NCP-1000 profiler) measurements were used to evaluate the mirrors.
