1 February 1994 Engineering qualification model of the SAX x-ray mirror unit: technical data and x-ray imaging characteristics
Author Affiliations +
The scientific instrumentation onboard the Italian X-ray astronomy satellite SAX foresees X- ray imaging Mirror Units (MU) operating in the energy range 0.1 - 10 KeV with spatial resolution of 1 arcmin HPR. The MU are composed of thirty nested confocal and coaxial very thin double cone mirrors, made by a nickel electroforming replica technique. The paper presents the results obtained with the Engineering Qualification Model of the MU, which are well within the scientific requirements.
