Paper Abstract

In this work, we investigate a novel design of optical system for astrophysics. In addition, a new testing method in the X-ray laboratory was verified. The proposed optical system is composed of modules with Kirkpatrick-Baez configuration allowing usage of multi-foil mirrors arranged along a parabolic profile. This system effectively uses a circular aperture, which is divided into petals. Individual petals consist of diagonally oriented KB cells with a common focus. This optical system can be improved by a set of nested rotationally symmetric X-ray mirrors in order to achieve higher reflection efficiency in harder part of considered spectrum.
