Paper Abstract

The X Ray Multimirror Mission will include a spectrometer consisting of two arrays of variable line-spaced reflection gratings for use in the 350 eV to 2.5 keV energy range. Approximately 720 replica gratings will be needed for two flight grating arrays and one spare. Evaluation of potential master gratings to be used in the replication process has begun. Both reflectivity and scattering x-ray measurements for three mechanically ruled prototype master gratings have been reported.
