Paper Abstract

Some techniques used to extract quantitative data from the information contained in photographic images produced by grazing incidence soft X-ray optical systems are described. The discussion is focussed on the analysis of the data returned by the S-054 X-Ray Spectrographic Telescope Experiment on Skylab. The parameters of the instrument and the procedures used for its calibration are described. The technique used to convert photographic density to focal plane X-ray irradiance is outlined. The deconvolution of the telescope point response function from the image data is discussed. Methods of estimating the temperature, pressure, and number density of coronal plasmas are outlined.
