Paper Abstract

One of the major sciences of XEUS is the evolution of massive black holes from early to current Universe. As is well known, considerable fraction of massive black holes harbored in active galactic nuclei are embedded in thick absorbing material. In order to observe black holes without any bias of absorption, we propose a hard X-ray imaging system to XEUS. The hard X-ray imaging system is consisted of super mirror X-ray telescopes with multilayer coating and of the position sensitive hard X-ray imaging CdTe detector. Under the current boundary conditions, the design parameters will be optimized for the telescope and the multilayers. Current achievements of hard X-ray imaging detectors are also presented.
