Paper Abstract

We report on the design, development and measured performance of the Microchannel plate X-ray optics for the Mercury imaging X-ray spectrometer instrument, due to fly to Mercury on the ESA/JAXA BepiColombo mission in 2018. This paper serves as a progress update, identifying further work to finish the analysis of data from the flight model.
