Paper Abstract

We report the x-ray quantum efficiency of the XIS in the soft x-ray band between 0.5 keV and 2.2 keV. We also report the x-ray and optical transmission of the OBF. We obtained the quantum efficiency of the XIS of approximately 0.25 at 0.53 keV. We also obtained the x-ray transmission of approximately 0.65 at O K(alpha) and optical transmission below 5 X 10-5 in the range 400-950 nm.
