Microchannel-plate-based x-ray optics is designed based on the principle that the lobster eye reflects rather than refracts the object. In practice, the inner wall of the square channel is not absolutely smooth but a bit rough, which causes diffuse scattering of X-rays, resulting in an exponential decline in reflectivity. In the present work, we investigated the morphology of channel inner wall in the etching process and the diffusion depth of the elements at the interface between channel and wall. The diffusion layer is a network-like structure, with the thickness of more than 1μm. As the acid-etching continues, the elements of the channel material in the network are gradually dissolved, and the remaining channel wall materials become the skeleton. After a long time of etching, the inner wall surface is columnar and the roughness is gradually increased. This study provides some guidelines for the preparation of ultra-smooth reflective surfaces.
