Paper Abstract

Due to the recent development of the design and production of layered synthetic microstructures (LSMs) we can entertain concepts for EUV instrument design that use normal incidence components. Thus, LSMs offer the possibility of producing an efficient extreme ultraviolet (EUV) telescope for solar studies that takes advantage of contemporary normal incidence mirror technology. This paper discusses the applica-tion of LSMs to figured mirrors suitable for solar EUV instruments. Initial studies were performed for a single mirror telescope consisting of an f/18, 200cm focal length, off-axis paraboloid. The design trades in terms of peak reflectance and broad bandpass in the 300Å region and deposition considerations will be discussed.
