Abstract
In previous papers, we reviewed the development of multilayer optics, the successful application of this new technology to astronomical observations, and the evolution of astronomical multilayer optics instrumentation through several generations. These developments have resulted in the acquisition of sub-arc-second images of the sun in several wavelength bands, permitting solar structures to be simultaneously observed over temperatures prevailing in the chromosphere (approximately 10,000 K - 100,000 K), the transition region (approximately 100,000 K - 1,000,000 K) and the corona (> 1,000,000 K). In the present paper, we discuss the interplay between the scientific objectives of the astronomical investigation, and the properties of the multilayer coatings.
