Paper Abstract

The measured efficiencies of two flight gratings and the reflectances of two flight mirrors developed for the Extreme-Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) for the Japanese Solar-B mission are presented. Each optic has two sectors with Mo/Si multilayers that refelct the 17 - 21 nm and 25 - 29 nm wavebands at normal incidence. The efficiencies that were measured using monochromatic synchrotron radiation are in good agreement with the calculated efficiencies.
