Paper Abstract

In recent years, X-ray astronomy has become an integral component of solar and celestial observing programs. The development of soft X-ray imaging by grazing-incidence optics, such as those flown on Skylab and the Einstein Observatory, has established soft X-ray telescopes as a major observational tool. Above 10 keV, however there has not been the same high resolution imaging capability, since grazing-incidence optics do not function effectively at these energies.
