In this paper we will review the performance of a “miniature” single pass cylindrical mirror analyzer (CMA) which we have used successfully in a variety of experiments. The underlying premise behind this CMA design was to minimize spatial requirements while maintaining an acceptable level of instrumental resolution. While we are presenting the results of a single pass cylindrical mirror analyzer, improvements on the present design, such as going to a double pass design, will undoubtedly improve the instrumental resolution.
