Paper Abstract

We report a study of a new X-ray interferometer with a beam splitter for future observation of celestial objects. A possible configuration of an interferometer is proposed. By using a beam splitter, the length of the interferometer becomes short and without a formation flight of satellites a reasonable X-ray interferometric observation can be possible. An observation of early type stars is discussed. A laboratory experiment for performance verification is also discussed.
