Synchrotron x-ray optics, such as mirrors and
monochromators, are used to reflect, focus, or
spectrally filter x-ray beams. The effective
delivery and utilization of x-ray beams rely on the
quality and performance of these optics. One of the
key issues affecting optimal performance is the
deviation from ideal shape of the optical surfaces.
Such deviation can be due to limitations in
manufacturing, but, more often than not, they result
from thermal and/or mechanical forces on the
crystalline substrate. Thus, understanding the
deformation and the methods used to minimize
undesired deformation can ensure acceptable optical
performance. This book addresses rigorous analysis
and design optimization of optical substrates
subjected to thermal and/or mechanical loads.
