21 December 1988 Comments On The Observability Of Coronal Variations
Author Affiliations +
We discuss the possibilities opened up by the newly-available soft x-ray and XUV multilayer coated optics for observations of the Solar outer atmosphere and corona. Presently available material combinations and the achievable quality of coatings provide basic limitations to the possible spectral bands which can be observed. The spectral regions within which Solar emission lines are formed are compared with the available multilayer passbands in a discussion of the types of instruments which we can consider building. In addition, we discuss briefly the possible spectral lines which are of interest for studying the various temperature regimes and variability time constants which are known to be present in the Solar atmosphere.
