Abstract


We briefly review the recent status of the Czech contribution to future space X-ray astronomy missions with emphasis on the development of new technologies and test samples of X-ray mirrors with precise surfaces based on new materials and alternative designs. We report on further investigations and tests of X-ray optical arrangements, such as Kirkpatrick-Baez systems and Multi-Foil Optics.

Keywords
