Paper Abstract

The scientific instrumentation onboard the Italian X-ray Astronomy Satellite SAX foresees four X-ray Mirror Units operating in the energy range 0.1 - 10 KeV with spatial resolution of 1 arcmin Half Power Radius. The Mirror Units are composed of thirty nested confocal and coaxial very thin double cone mirrors made by a nickel electroforming replica technique. The paper presents the X-ray characterization data obtained at the PANTER facility on the Flight Mirror Units.
