We have developed a multi source electron beam evaporation system toprepare high quality X-ray multilayer mirrors. The system has three electron guns mounted in an ultra high vacuum chamber. The deposition system is evacuated by a turbo molecular pump and two sputter ion pumps. A movable masking system is mounted to deposit several kinds of multilayers. First results on niobium-carbon X-ray multilayers are presented.
