20 September 2007 Thermal shielding of the SIMBOL-X mirror assembly
Author Affiliations +
The thermal modeling of the SIMBOL-X X-ray telescope has shown that thermal shielding of both the telescope ends is one possibility to ensure temperature uniformity of the mirror and to reduce the required heating power. The design of the thermal shielding must minimize the thermal exchange in a trade off between transparency of the shields to soft X-rays and mechanical robustness. We discuss two possible designs of the thermal shielding of the mirror module and show transmission curves at X-ray wavelengths.
