Paper Abstract

Several designs of filters for use in vacuum UV imaging systems are discussed. These designs incorporate all reflective optics,and are characterized by comparatively high in-band throughout, very low out-of-band transmission and sub-arcsecond spatial resolution. In addition, they an be tuned over ranges useful for vacuum UV astronomical observations. Results from a simplified laboratory version of the filters intended to prove the concept are presented.
