Normal-incidence figured reflectors for soft X-rays using multilayer coatings have been produced and successfully used in the last several years. Very recently, the first X-ray image of an astronomical object by a multilayer reflector has been obtained. Partially transmitting optics that are possible with current technology and may contribute to the development of short-wavelength lasers and interferometry are reviewed.
