A highly precise adaptive optical system that can be used in the hard X-ray region was developed. To achieve highly precise control of the wavefront shape, we discussed an optical system with a bendable mirror of deformation accuracy better than 0.4nm RMS. Using the system, we demonstrated the controllability of the wavefront of a 15nm hard X-ray nanobeam. The intensity profile of the wavefrontmodified beam was in good agreement with the wave-optically calculated profile.
