    Total reflection x-ray fluorescence analysis is applied to trace element detection in liquid for effective environmental monitoring. This analytical approach requires x-ray total reflection mirrors. In order to achieve high sensitivity element detection, the mirrors require high surface quality for high x-ray reflectivity. Surface finishing for x-ray mirrors is typically conducted through a series of abrasive processes, such as grinding and polishing, and is thus time consuming. The purpose of this study is to streamline and enhance the surface finishing process based on unique high quality grinding techniques for the production of x-ray total reflection mirrors.
