Paper Abstract

Four reflection, grazing incidence X-ray optics offer the possibility of broad band (0.1-10.0 keV) X-ray telescopes that fit within the physical envelope of NASA's Small and Medium Explorer mission. We describe a short focal length (4 m) optical design with arcsec imagery over a 1 degree(s) field of view and good efficiency in the Fe-K band (6.4-7.1 keV).
