Abstract
The characteristics of different types of thin film XUV filters for the TEREK-C solar telescope and the REC-C spectroheliograph developed in the framework of the CORONAS-I program are presented. We describe the design and properties of Al-Formvar composite filters on rigid mesh supports with a spacing of 0.7 mm and 2 mm, which have been mounted in front of the XUV spectral channels of both instruments. It was proposed to use thin films of SiC as bandpass filters with high transparency in the 13 - 30 nm spectral region and effective cutoff blocking of strong solar Lα (121.7 nm) line radiation. The Al and SiC thin films on fine porous polymer membranes with through pores were placed in close proximity of the entrance plane of the image detectors, designed as a combination of open type microchannel plate and CCD-matrix. The problem of elimination of the influence of diffraction effects on X-ray images in the telescope focal plane is considered. All filters have sustained without damage the launching overloads (the launch took place on March 12, 1994) and successfully worked in the TEREK-C and the RES-C instruments.
