The normal-incidence reflectance of a Mo/Si multilayer mirror, with peak reflectance near 130 Å, was measured over a period of 20 months by using synchrotron radiation. The measured reflectances were unchanged over this period of time, and this indicates that the material layers and interfaces were stable.
