Abstract

The fabrication of small toroidal mirrors in tandem for x-ray imaging is discussed. First, a male mandrel is made by grinding and polishing a molybdenum rod. Then a glass replica is cast and lightly polished. The method of polishing the male mandrel is described. A photograph of a copper mesh taken with a 8.3-Å x ray is shown.
