To improve the stress property of multilayer optics working in extreme ultraviolet and x-ray range, mono-layer thin films of Mo, MoSi2, Si, with thickness of 100nm, and periodic multilayers of [Mo/Si]20, [MoSi2/Si]20, with period thickness of 20nm, were prepared by direct current magnetron sputtering method. Before and after each deposition, the radius of surface curvatures of substrates were measured using a stylus profiler and then the film stress was calculated. The measurement results indicate that, Mo, MoSi2 and Si mono-layer thin films all shows compressive stress, while Mo/Si multilayer shows tensile stress, i.e., the film stress changes significantly during Mo/Si multilayer growth. For MoSi2/Si multilayer, the film stress still keeps compressive, which indicates more stable stress property.
