Femtosecond laser surface ablation is applied to selectively remove stressed film regions on the mirror substrate, correcting the shape of the mirror’s reflective surface (Image: Heng Zuo, MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research)

Femtosecond laser micromachining optimises x-ray telescope mirror fabrication

Such telescopes are used to capture high-energy cosmic events involved in forming new stars and supermassive black holes
