A new scheme for wavefront correction in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength range is presented. The central feature of the scheme is the successful growth of crystalline piezoelectric thin films with the desired orientation on an amorphous glass substrate. The piezoelectric films show a high piezoelectric coefficient of 250 pm/V. Using wavefront calculations we show that the grown films would enable high-quality wavefront correction, based on a stroke of 25 nm, with voltages that are well below the electrical breakdown limit of the piezoelectric film.
