Abstract

This paper details the development of a precise assembly of two supermirrors for neutron-focusing, designed for installation in neutron reflectometer SOFIA at BL16 in J-PARC MLF to intensify the illumination for small samples. The supermirrors are sputtered on two metal substrates, whose surfaces are coated with amorphous Ni-P plating, and are figured by diamond cutting and polished to subnanometer roughness. Special care is taken while polishing the substrates to reduce waviness and surface roughness for achieving a sharp focusing spot and uniform neutron reflectivity. The supermirror could converge the neutrons into a focal spot with a width of 0.13 mm in the full width at half maximum.

Fig. 3. Decrease in the waviness of the substrate surface by rough and corrective polishing: (a) gray-scale images showing the maps of the longitudinal slope errors with the red lines showing their cross-sections along the center line, and (b) the frequency distribution of the slope error. The maps are obtained by stitching from multiple maps measured using a laser interferometer (Verifier QPZ, Zygo Corp.). The slope errors are relative to the best-fit ellipse, whose lengths of the semimajor and semiminor axes are 2050 mm and 21.5 mm, respectively. Note that at these states, the substrate is slightly deformed because it is fixed to the polishing frame for polishing near edges.

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5. Surface roughness of the supermirror substrate: (a) surface roughness before and after 32 h of polishing with colloidal silica and (b) reduction in the roughness with time. The error bars represent the standard deviation of the roughness in nine different positions. The roughness was measured with a white-light scanning interferometer (NewView7200, Zygo Corp.).

The form is measured using a coordinate measurement machine (Legex, Mitutoyo Co., Ltd.) equipped with a laser autofocus probe (PFU-3, Mitaka Kohki Co., Ltd). Note that the figure errors are relative to the best-fit ellipse. The lengths of the semimajor and semiminor axes of the ellipse are 2219 mm and 21.5 mm, respectively.

Summary of the elliptic neutron-focusing supermirror precision: (a) figure error with respect to the best-fit ellipse, measured by an interferometer (Verifier QPZ, Zygo Corp.) and (b) longitudinal slope error distribution along the center line.

The reflectivity curve of the supermirror on a silicon wafer is also shown for comparison. Note that $q_c$ is 0.628 $\pm$ 0.007$\left (\sigma \right )$ $\textrm {nm}^{-1}$ for all the positions.
