Paper Abstract

EUV telescopes are typically Wolter Type telescopes. Made with glancing incidence mirrors. Recent developments in miltilayer caotings have opened up the possiblitity of using normal incidence mirrors in a Cassegrain configuration for EUV telescopes. Each of these approaches has advantages and disadvantages. Glancing incidence mirrors have a higher reflectivity with a braod bandwidth, but the sufaces are dificult to make. Normal incidence mirrors are easier to fabricate to the necessary sufcae requirments, but require caotings with acceptable reflectivity only in a narrow bandpass. In this paper we will discuss the technical tradeoffs of using glancing incidence and normal incidence mirrors for EUV telescopes.
