Abstract
A proposal for an x-ray optics test facility based at a synchrotron radiation source is presented. The facility would incorporate a clean preparation area, and a large evacuable test area. The advantages of using a synchrotron as the source of the test radiation are discussed. These include the ability to produce a highly parallel beam of monochromatic x rays ranging from 200 eV to around 70 keV.
