29 July 2010 Current status of hard x-ray characterization of ASTRO-H HXT at SPring-8

We present the current status of hard X-ray telescope developments of ASTRO-H. ASTRO-H is Japan's 6th Xray satellite mission following to Suzaku. It will be launched in 2014. The HXT onboard ASTRO-H is thin-foil, multi-nested conical optics as well as Suzaku XRT. To reflect hard X-rays efficiently, reflector surfaces are coated with depth-graded Pt/C multilayer. Reflectors are fabricated by the epoxy-replication method. Currently, we have finished the preparation of mirror production facility at Nagoya University, and started test production of reflectors for HXT. The selected 22 pairs of multilayer reflectors have been characterized at the SPring-8 beamline BL20B2.
