Abstract
To improve angular resolution of high-throughput X-ray telescope using aluminum foil substrate, a multi-stage closed shell substrate is the key target of the development. For this purpose we have been developing two new fabrication methods to make very thin aluminum substrate. One is to use electron beam welding and the other is to use direct machining with lathe. By means of these methods, test conical mirror substrates were made and it was found that these had enough accurate shape as substrates to be used for epoxy replication.
