Techniques have recently been developed for the fabrication, by sputtering, of multi-layer structures in which the individual layers may have thicknesses as little as a few atomic diameters. Diffraction experiments with x-rays of wavelength ranging from less than 1 Å to 113 Å have shown these layered synthetic microstructures to have a high degree of perfection. They act as efficient reflectors for x-rays and EUV radiation at angles of incidence from 0o to almost 90o (extreme glancing incidence). Experimental results using normal incidence imaging optics at soft x-ray wavelengths are shown. Such optics can be used in a variety of configurations for both solar and non-solar x-ray astronomy. The advantages of two particular systems - the single mirror and the hybrid Wolter-LSM system - are discussed and performance calculations presented.
