Paper Abstract

Two-mirror grazing incidence telescopes with one conical mirror surface were designed and analyzed and compared to the classical Wolter-type configuration. Even though performance improvements could not be expected, the simplicity of these systems is attractive. An additional advantage is that the grazing angle along a surface varies much more slowly in systems with one conical surface, rendering, for a given range of grazing angles, a significantly larger collecting area.
