The beamlines in the upgrade to the Advanced Photon Source (APS) will incorporate state-of-the-art optics with unprecedented quality and precision. These optics include a large number of grazing-incidence mirrors with surface shape and slope errors specifications that are at the limit or beyond the resolution of the existing APS tools. Developing the tools for such precise measurements and then characterizing such an overwhelming number of mirrors are major challenges. Also required is careful planning and coordination with respect to mirror delivery by the vendors and installation at the target beamlines.
