Abstract
Development work on JET-X has been completed and the flight model instrument is under construction. The X-ray performance of the mirror system and of the CCD detector have been determined by measurement and simulation in the course of development and optimization of JET-X over the past two years. New data on fine structure in the spectral response of CCD quantum efficiency and mirror reflectivity are presented. These results indicate that low intensity synchrotron radiation is an important new tool in the calibration of X-ray telescopes and is essential for determining the fine structure in the spectral efficiency and spectral resolution of X-ray telescopes that use CCD focal plane detectors.
