Because of the scientific successes of research using synchrotron radiation (SR) and the unique properties of SR beams, the design of optical elements for use in SR presents problems which are both challenging and important. This paper reviews the unique requirements imposed on SR optics and broadly discusses the research and development needed for their achievement.
