20 June 1995 Comparative study of hard x-ray (>10 keV) focusing techniques for space astronomy
Author Affiliations +
We report on results of a comparative study of two reflection techniques, Bragg diffraction from mosaic crystals and reflection from continuously graded multilayers, presently under development to focus hard x rays for astronomical applications. Particular emphasis is given to compare the performance of Wolter I telescope configurations based on multilayers coatings with paraboloidal telescope configurations based on mosaic crystals of graphite (002), that are currently under investigation in our group.
