Abstract
The ESA High Throughput X-ray Spectroscopy Mission (XMM) is a telescope with three modules each consisting of 58 highly nested Wolter I mirrors with a focal length of 7.5 m. Envisaged resolution for an XMM module is 27 arcsec Half Energy Width at 8 keV x-ray energy. Due to the high packing density of the mirror shells within such a telescope, thin walled and light weight mirrors are required. In this paper the results of production, integration and performance tests of XMM CRFP/EPOXY mirror shells of all sizes (diameters from 300 mm to 700 mm; length equals 600 mm; wall thickness from 0.7 mm to 1.3 mm) for the XMM telescope will be reported.
