Paper Abstract

The ESA's invitation to participate in the innovative technology developments for the new space mission represents the natural continuation of the efforts of the Czech team in development of innovative X-ray telescopes, focusing on particular demands and requirements of a concrete project, with emphasis on fully new and light-weight technologies. In this paper we focus on studying of other alternative materials such as SiC or glassy carbon, which could be considered as suitable materials for the producing of precise light weight X-ray optics due to their physical and chemical properties and so far successfully compete with more common materials (like glass or Si) as well as on Si wafers with improved surface quality and analysis and evaluation of measured data.
