Paper Abstract

High groove density reflection gratings placed at grazing incidence in the extreme off-plane mount offer increased performance over conventional in-plane mounts in the x-ray. We are developing an off-plane approach to the Reflection Grating Spectrometer of the Constellation-X Mission. In this paper we discuss the geometry of the off-plane mount and present formulae for the key tolerances of the grating array.
