Paper Abstract

The Resolve instrument onboard the X-ray Astronomy Recovery Mission (XARM) consists of an array of 6x6 silicon-thermistor microcalorimeters cooled down to 50 mK and a high-throughput X-ray mirror assembly with a focal length of 5.6 m. The XARM is a recovery mission of ASTRO-H/Hitomi, and is developed by international collaboration of Japan, USA, and Europe. The Soft X-ray Spectrometer (SXS) onboard Hitomi demonstrated high resolution X-ray spectroscopy of ~ 5 eV FWHM in orbit for most of the microcalorimeter pixels. The Resolve instrument is planned to mostly be a copy of the Hitomi SXS and Soft X-ray Telescope designs, though several changes are planned based on the lessons learned of Hitomi. The energy resolution budget of the microcalorimeters is updated, reflecting the Hitomi SXS results. We report the current status of the Resolve instrument.
