This paper reviews a series of studies that address the development and application of aperiodic multilayer structures (aperiodic multilayer mirrors) as soft X-ray (SXR) (λ ≈ 4—40 nm) optical elements. The paper discusses the potential of such structures for reflecting SXR radiation in a broad wavelength range, primarily at normal radiation incidence; and as polarization elements (broadband polarizer mirrors and phase shifters). The results of multiparametric optimization are presented, and experimental data for aperiodic Mo/Si (λ ⩾ 12.5 nm) multilayer mirrors are outlined. The feasibility of advancing to the λ ⩽ 12.5 nm domain due to the use of other materials is examined, and the capabilities of aperiodic structures as elements of attosecond SXR optics are discussed.
