Title: Surface Deformations of Optical Elements -An Investigation of Optical Systems Using the BESSY-NOM

Abstract

The surface shape of optical elements is affected by their mounting (support, holder, clamping, cooling). The BESSY Nano Optic Measuring Machine (NOM) gives the opportunity to analyze these effects on the nanometer scale and sub-nanometer scale. Linescans of surface profiles and the linescan-based 3-dimensional measurement feature of the NOM were used to characterize the surface shapes. In several configurations considering optical elements for the synchtrotron radiation application knowledge and effects about surface deformations due to mirror supports and coolings will be discussed. In this context a proposal for an adaptive mirror and the possible application in a BESSY-beamline will be presented.

  • This article describes coherent gradient sensing (CGS) as an optical, full-field, real-time, nonintrusive, and noncontact technique for the measurement of curvatures and nonuniform curvature changes in film{endash}substrate systems. The technique is applied to the study of curvature fields in thin Al films (6 {mu}m) deposited on thin circular silicon wafers (105 {mu}m) of {open_quotes}large{close_quotes} in-plane dimensions (50.8 mm in diameter) subjected to thermal loading histories. The loading and geometry is such that the system experiences deformations that are clearly within the nonlinear range. The discussion is focused on investigating the limits of the range of the linear relationship between themore » thermally induced mismatch strain and the substrate curvature, on the degree to which the substrate curvature becomes spatially nonuniform in the range of geometrically nonlinear deformation, and finally, on the bifurcation of deformation mode from axial symmetry to asymmetry with increasing mismatch strain. Results obtained on the basis of both simple models and more-detailed finite-element simulations are compared with the full-field CGS measurements with the purpose of validating the analytical and numerical models. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.« less
  • It is demonstrated that laser-surface interactions that cause optical surface damage of nominally transparent materials can be investigated by observing the effects of excitation by pairs of picosecond pulses separated by a variable time delay. Laser-induced emission of neutrals is used as the detection mechanism in the present experiments.
  • The Nanometer Optical Component measuring Machine (NOM) has been developed at BESSY for the purpose of measuring the surface figure of optical components up to 1.2 m in length used at grazing incidence in Synchrotron Radiation beamlines. It is possible to acquire information about slope and height deviations and the radius of curvature of a sample in the form of line-scans and in a three dimensional display format. With the NOM surfaces up to 600 cm2 have been measured with an estimated measuring uncertainty in the range of 0.01 arcsec rms and with a correspondingly high reproducibility. This is amore » five to tenfold improvement compared to the present state of the art of surface measuring techniques. The engineering conception, the design of the NOM and the first measurements are discussed in detail.« less
  • The commissioning of the high-brilliance synchrotron light source BESSY-II in Berlin started in April 1998. Within the commissioning period, bunch-by-bunch feedback systems to counteract longitudinal and transverse multibunch instabilities will be installed. This paper reviews their design and present status.
