Thales can offer SESO® U-Benders (with one or two actuators) and 4 Cylinders Benders for horizontal focusing mirrors for Beamlines with adjacent beams with a distance of less than 150 mm.
SESO® X-Ray Mirrors
Thanks to our Ion Beam Figuring Thales can offer slope errors of less than 0.2 µrad up to 1.5 m long mirrors. It is also possible to offer 0.1 µrad on length up to 600 mm due to our new normal incidence interferometer.
Active mirror: Thales supplies its new generation of bimorph where the small artefacts due to the limited length of the piezo electric ceramics are removed. Design based on its Patent 1000471-05/02/2010. They are already used on Australian Synchrotron and on Synchrotron Soleil. Thales has been able to offer thanks to this design an active mirror polished on both sides (Proxima Beamline at Synchrotron Soleil).
