The response of magnetic vortex cores to subnanosecond in-plane magnetic field pulses was studied by time-resolved x-ray microscopy. Vortex core reversal was observed and the switching events were located in space and time. This revealed a mechanism of coherent excitation by the leading and trailing edges of the pulse, lowering the field amplitude required(More)
Coherent X-ray scattering is an emerging technique for measuring structure at the nanoscale. Data management and analysis is becoming a bottleneck in this technique. We present an unsupervised method which can sort and cluster the scattering snapshots, uncovering patterns inherent in the data. Our algorithm operates without resorting to templates, specific(More)
In a previous paper, the University of Arizona (UA) has developed a measurement technique called: Software Configurable Optical Test System (SCOTS) based on the principle of reflection deflectometry. In this paper, we present results of this very efficient optical metrology method applied to the metrology of X-ray mirrors. We used this technique to measure(More)
Characterization and testing of an L-shaped laterally graded multilayer mirror are presented. This mirror is designed as a two-dimensional collimating optics for the analyzer system of the ultra-high-resolution inelastic X-ray scattering (IXS) spectrometer at National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II). The characterization includes point-to-point(More)
We present a 2D Slope measuring System based on a Stitching Shack Hartmann Optical Head (SSH-OH) aiming to perform high accuracy optical metrology for X-ray mirrors. This system was developed to perform high-accuracy automated metrology for extremely high quality optical components needed for synchrotrons or Free Electrons Lasers (FEL), EUV lithography and(More)
In this work, we proposed for stitching interferometry to use a triple-beam interferometer to measure both the distance and the tilt for all sub-apertures before the stitching process. The relative piston between two neighboring sub-apertures is then calculated by using the data in the overlapping area. Comparisons are made between our method, and the(More)
We report on the development of a one-dimensional Ion Beam Figuring (IBF) system for x-ray mirror polishing. Ion beam figuring provides a highly deterministic method for the final precision figuring of optical components with advantages over conventional methods. The system is based on a state of the art sputtering deposition system outfitted with a gridded(More)
Surface slope profile is widely used in the metrology of grazing-incidence reflective optics instead of surface height profile. Nevertheless, the theoretical and experimental model currently used in deterministic optical figuring processes is based on surface height, not on surface slope. This means that the raw slope profile data from metrology need to be(More)
One-dimensional ion-beam figuring (1D-IBF) can improve grazing-incidence reflective optics, such as Kirkpatrick-Baez mirrors. 1D-IBF requires only one motion degree of freedom, which reduces equipment complexity, resulting in compact and low-cost IBF instrumentation. Furthermore, 1D-IBF is easy to integrate into a single vacuum system with other fabrication(More)
