Paper Abstract

Next Generation X-ray Optics (NGXO) team at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has been developing a new silicon-based grazing incidence mirror technology for future high resolution X-ray astronomical missions. Recently, the GSFC team completed the construction of first few mirror modules that contain one pair of mirrors. One of the mirror pairs was tested in GSFC 600-m long beamline facility and PANTER (Neuried, Germany) 120-m long X-ray beamline facility. Both full aperture X-ray tests, Hartmann tests, and focal plane sweeps were completed. In this paper we present the data analysis process and compare the results from our models to measured X-ray centroid data, X-ray performance data, and out of focus images of the mirror pair.
