Abstract
Since 1974 X-ray optics and optical ground support equipment for various national and international X-ray and EUV- missions have been designed, manufactured, tested and delivered by Carl Zeiss/Oberkochen. The range of X-ray optics includes mirror systems for ASTRO 8, ROSAT and ABRIXAS, as well as mandrels for SAX, JET-X, WFXT, XMM, Constellation-X and XEUS. An example for high quality EUV- systems is the Wolter II mirror system for SOHO-CDS. We will give a retrospect to previous programs, report about recently performed and finished X-ray optics, as well as we will give an outlook for future contributions.
