We investigated a one-dimensional Wolter mirror (which consists of an elliptical mirror and a hyperbolic mirror) with the aim of developing an achromatic full-field X-ray microscope with a resolution of better than 50 nm. X-ray mirrors were ultraprecisely fabricated by elastic emission machining to give a figure accuracy of 2 nm (peak-to-valley). A one-dimensional Wolter mirror that had been precisely constructed was evaluated in terms of the point-spread function at the center of the field of view (FOV) and the FOV at an X-ray energy of 11.5 keV at BL29XUL of SPring-8. It was found to have a minimum resolution of 43 nm and a FOV equivalent to 12.1 μm. These results are highly consistent with calculation results.
