Mutilayers are important optical elements and widely used for extreme ultraviolet astronomical observation. For selecting the emission line multilayers should have high reflectivity and narrow spectral bandwidth. In this paper, six different multilayers including Si/C, Si/B4C, Si/Mo/B4C, Si/SiC, Mg/SiC and Mo/Si were designed for normal incidence angle of 5° at He-IIemission line(λ=30.4 nm). These multilayers have been fabricated using a direct current magnetron sputtering system. The period of multilayers were measured by X-ray diffractometer(XRD) and the reflectivities were measured on National Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Hefei, China. Then the reflectivities and the spectral bandwidth of these multilayers were compared respectively. It shows that the spectral bandwidth of multilayers of low Z materials is narrower than that of the normal Mo/Si multiayer, the reflectivity of Si/Mo/B4C multilayer is higher than that of Si-based multilayers of two kinds of materials. And Mg/SiC multilayer has the highest reflectivity of 43.81% and the narrowest spectral bandwidth of 1.44nm, which proves that Mg/SiC multilayer is more potential for selecting the emission line in extreme ultraviolet solar physics.© (2010) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
