Novel ultra-lightweight and High-resolution MEMS X-ray optics for space astronomy

Abstract

We report a novel micromachined X-ray optics using DRIE formed micro mirrors for future space astronomical missions. We have fabricated a test optics and measured its imaging quality using X-rays. We have successfully verified the X-ray focusing using this type of optics for the first time in the world. The obtained angular resolution was about 20 arcmin… (More)
