Paper Abstract

This continues and extends the description of a Fourier synthesis hard x-ray polycapillary telescope which appeared in Volume 2803 of these Proceedings (1996). Topics include i) the use of a fiber optic gyroscope to stabilize fringe phase and obtain subarcminute resolution; ii) implementation of dual imaging and high-sensitivity concentrator modes; iii) differential telescope rotating to eliminate imaging systematics; iv) telescope scaling to orbital platforms with weight constraints.
