Replicated optics

    For EUV And X-ray Radiation

    Custom designed optics of various shapes for EUV and X-ray facilities and laboratory sources

    RITE manufactures and sells Total Reflection X-ray optics. Total Reflection X-ray Optics are specially designed to satisfy both the evolving EUV/XUV industry and the more established hard and soft X-ray applications.

    Replicated optics Overview

    RITE has mastered a unique manufacturing technology called replication. This manufacturing technique enables the production of X-ray optics with unique optical features such as low weight, high surface precision (low slope error) and extremely low micro-roughness. Another interesting attribute of Total Reflection Optics is the use of various metallic layers as coatings. The most commonly used materials are Ni, Au, Mo and Ru


    Ellipsoidal focusing optics


    Parabolic collimating optics

    replicated4Au vs. Ru, up to 2x higher reflectivity using ruthenium layer
