20 June 1995 Calibration of multilayer mirrors for the Multi-Spectral Solar Telescope Array II
Author Affiliations +
The Multi-Spectral Solar Telescope Array II (MSSTA II), a rocket-borne solar observatory, was successfully flown on November 3, 1994 obtaining solar images in multiple XUV and FUV bands with an array of compact multilayer telescopes. Extensive measurements have recently been carried out on some of the multilayer telescopes at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory. These measurements are the first high spectral resolution calibrations of newly introduced MSSTA II instruments and instruments with lambda0 less than 130 angstrom. Previous measurements and/or calculations of telescope throughputs have been confirmed with greater accuracy. Results are presented on Mo/Si multilayer bandpasses, and multilayer bandpass changes with time.
