Paper Abstract

The high-energy response of XEUS will be of crucial importance for a number of astrophysical topics, e.g.: highly obscured AGNs, non-thermal emissions from SNRs, AGNs and clusters of galaxies, nuclear line emission from SNRs and hard X-ray emission in GRB afterglows. The XEUS telescope will achieve high-energy response (up to 90 keV) employing super mirror technology whereby the inner mirrors will be coated with graded multi layers. The detectors will be implemented as part of the Wide Field Imager which also has DEPFET and CCDs to cover the soft-X-ray survey science. Solutions for the associated focal plane Hard X-ray Imaging Camera have been investigated by the XEUS Instrument Working Group and will be discussed in the present contribution.
