Abstract

Replica technology was developed for manufacturing numerous low-cost grazing incidence x-ray mirrors for both laboratory and astrophysical experiments. About forty mirrors with apertures between 1.7 and 24 cm have so far been made. The results of tests both at optical and x-ray wavelengths indicate that replica optics is well suited for space and laboratory uses.
