Over more than 50th years Thales SESO represents a world leading designer and manufacturer of high-end, optical components such as telescopes and satellite-based space observation optics operating over the entire spectral range from infrared to x-ray wavelengths.  Since early 90th we are actively working in the EUV, Soft-X-ray and hard X-ray spectral range, by developing new equipment and introducing metrology innovations and brand new patented products such as bender and bimorphs mirrors (1st and 2nd generation).

A portfolio of customized solution and integrated system for imaging and spectroscopy have been developed basing on the original Wolter and Kirckpatrick-Baez design. Recent examples of reflective optics behaving both, as collimator, focusing and imaging device will discussed through this presentation. A set of solutions to realize fixed curvature optics and dynamically bended device will be detailed to illustrate the flexibility and performances of these products.
