Paper Abstract

The future space X-ray astronomy imaging missions require very large collecting areas at still fine angular resolution and reasonable weight. The novel space Xray optics substrates such as Silicon wafers and thin thermally formed glass enable wide applications of precise and very light weight (volume densities 2.3 to 2.5 gcm-3) optics. The recent status of novel technologies as well as developed test samples with emphasis on precise optical surfaces based on novel materials and their space applications will be presented and discussed.
