Abstract
We present the design, fabrication and characterization of a novel adaptive X-ray optic by bringing together bimorph adaptive technology and the novel Elastic Emission Machining "super-polishing" technique. This super-polished adaptive mirror provides variable focal distance and local figure control in the sub-nm range. The optic has the potential to generate distortion-free beams, and enable wavefront control.
