Chirped broadband multilayer mirrors are key components to shape attosecond pulses in the XUV range. Compressing high harmonic pulses to their Fourier limit is the major goal for attosecond physics utilizing short pulse pump-probe experiments. Here, we report about the first implementation of multilayers fulfilling these requirements in the “waterwindow” spectral range.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
