Abstract

A triple reflection grazing incidence x-ray telescope is proposed and evaluated. This form of an optical system can detect x-ray energy that is close to the optical axis, which solves the problems encountered by traditional Wolter-type systems. In this paper, we also propose a new design method to ensure that the entire telescope structure is compact and integrated. Finally, a proof-of-concept design with an acceptable image quality is proposed.
