An X-ray telescope (XRT) is a telescope that is designed to observe remote objects in the X-ray spectrum. In order to get above the Earth's atmosphere, which is opaque to X-rays, X-ray telescopes must be mounted on high altitude rockets, balloons or artificial satellites. The basic elements of the telescope are the optics (focusing or collimating), that collects the radiation entering the.   Gamma-rays coming from space are mostly absorbed by the Earth's gamma-ray astronomy could not develop until it was possible to get our detectors above all or most of the atmosphere, using balloons or spacecraft. The first gamma-ray telescope carried into orbit, on the Explorer XI satellite in , picked up fewer than cosmic gamma-ray photons.

CCDs are now used in many scientific, medical and industrial applications. Originally developed for visible imaging, the detectors have also found use in X-ray applications. With.

Gamma-ray astronomy is directly related to X-ray astronomy, and the boundary between them is highly arbitrary. It is generally customary to include in gamma-ray astronomy investigations in the spectral region, where the energy of the quanta exceeds 30 keV (corresponding to a . The principles and design considerations of coded aperture imaging systems for high energy astronomy in the X-ray to gamma-ray range are reviewed. A mask consisting of an array of opaque and transparent elements set between the source fluxes and a position-sensitive detection plane is .

X-ray optics is the branch of optics that manipulates X-rays instead of visible deals with focusing and other ways of manipulating the X-ray beams for research techniques such as X-ray crystallography, X-ray fluorescence, small-angle X-ray scattering, X-ray microscopy, X-ray phase-contrast imaging, X-ray astronomy etc.

Since X-rays and visible light are both electromagnetic waves. The Focusing Optics x-ray Solar Imager (FOXSI) is a sounding rocket payload funded under the NASA Low Cost Access to Space program to test hard x-ray focusing optics and position-sensitive solid state detectors for solar by: Gamma-ray astronomy, study of astronomical objects and phenomena that emit gamma rays.

Gamma-ray telescopes are designed to observe high-energy astrophysical systems, including stellar coronas, white dwarf stars, neutron stars, black holes, supernova remnants, clusters of galaxies, and diffuse gamma-ray background radiation found along the plane of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Program Description. he emergence of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and x-ray sources with unprecedented brightness and coherence properties (free-electron lasers, tabletop lasers, high-harmonic generation and synchrotron sources) has ushered a new era in scientific research and has imposed completely new demands for the performance of reflective optics needed.

The Question. Where could I find some pictures of UV radiation (if it's possible). Please send me the URL address. The Answer. High-energy at the HEASARC covers the energy range of eV on up, X-rays and gamma-rays, which is beyond what most astronomers consider to be the UV.

However, if you are open minded about it, we have some great images from the soft X-ray ( - eV) band. This chapter provides an overview of the design and principles of infrared, ultraviolet, X-ray, and gamma ray telescopes.

The infrared astronomical ground observation is seriously limited by atmospheric thermal emissions. To reduce the sky background noise, a chopping technique and special structural design are usually : Jingquan Cheng.

A valid cone radius must be greater than degrees and less than or equal to degrees when searching the X-ray and EUV regimes or degrees for the gamma-ray regime.

Caveats (1) The larger the radius of the cone search used, the more chance there is of finding a match with a random source rather than with the object/position specified. Dr. Michael J. Pivovaroff.
