Paper Abstract

We discuss and analyze a two reflection grazing incidence spectrograph concept based on the Kirkpatrick-Baez telescope. The classical Kirkpatrick-Baez telescope uses two banks of crossed, cylindrical mirrors to achieve focus. Performance of a two reflection design is discussed for single mirror set and multiple mirror bank configurations.
