29 July 2014 Studies of lightweight x-ray telescope with CFRP
Author Affiliations +
We studies lightweight X-ray mirror with Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) substrate for next generation X-ray satellites. CFRP is suitable material as substrate for thin-foil highly nested X-ray mirrors like telescope of Suzaku, ASTRO-H since it has properties of higher strength-to-weight ratio and flexibility of forming than that of metals. In the current year we made flat panels for basic research and full/partial shell substrates by quasi-isotropic laminate with 8 ply prepregs, and performed reflector replication based on technique for the HXT mirror.
