X-Ray Telescopes - Optics design and technology
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Simon Hodgkin.
I shall describe the basic physical and geometrical principles available for the design and construction of X-ray telescopes and show how these have been used in producing existing X-ray telescopes like XMM -Newton and the Chandra Observatory. I’ll then consider the new technologies being developed for the next generation of X-ray telescopes which we hope will move X-ray astronomy in to a new era. Finally, if time permits, I’ll consider how we might develop new technologies to exploit the true potential of X-rays working at the diffraction limit.
