Paper Abstract

Prior to the development of imaging X-ray optics at MPI two short beam X-ray test facilities have been set up and are operational since 1976. They consist of high power X-ray sources, 15 m and 10 m, respectively, long vacuum tubes and instrument chambers equipped with an optical bench and high precision manipulator systems for positioning of the test specimen. By means of the facilities various investigations have been performed comprising measurements of X-ray surface scattering from polished flat mirror samples and imaging telescopes, testing of imaging X-ray detectors and efficiency measurements of X-ray transmission gratings. For testing and calibrating an 80 cm diameter Wolter telescope currently under development at MPI the 15 m facility will be extended to 130 m beginning its operation by the beginning of 1980.
