Paper Abstract

The high throughput of the ROSAT X-ray telescope is largely dependent on the reflectance of the gold coating of the mirrors in the wavelength region 6 - 100 Å. In this context measurements of the reflectivity and scattering of soft X-rays at various wavelengths and reflection angles have been performed on a large variety of flat mirror samples. The effects related to coating technique and surface contamination are discussed.
