- The optical surfaces for the Advanced X-ray Astrophysical Facility (AXAF), was studied. The applicability of precision machining technology to the manufacture of the AXAF objective mirrors and the proposed and alternative methods for manufacturing and testing; (1) the AXAF technology mirrors and (2) the AXAF high resolution mirror assembly were reviewed. Surface shape and smoothness metrology for grazing incidence X-ray surfaces and the feasibility of applying heterodyne surface profilometry to nonflat surfaces were investigated. Three sets of scattering flats with known surface profiles and microtopographic character produced by precision machining and polished precision machine surfaces were analyzed.
