The best material for constructing a mirror for a broad-bandwidth telescope that is also capable of re ecting EUV light is pure aluminum. In order to test how the re ectance of aluminum in the EUV range changes as it oxidizes, a system has been constructed that allows a thin aluminum mirror to be constructed inside of a vacuum, where its re ectance can then be tested immediately. Because the experiment must take place in a vacuum, it must also be controlled remotely through a computer program… CONTINUE READING
