Some Considerations on UV Optics for Synchrotron Radiation

While synchrotron radiation (SR) has a broad spectrum extending from the hard x-ray region (tens of keV) through the visible and infrared regions (a few eV) the main interest is in those wavelengths which are not readily available from other sources; that is those wavelengths shorter than say 2000Å. This region poses several problems for the optical designer that do not occur in the visible region of the spectrum.
