abstract

This paper describes the conceptual design of a soft x-ray telescope, super-x, which we will propose for the Japan/US/UK Solar-B mission. Super-X will break new ground in both angular resolution and solar coronal temperature discrimination. The telescope design is based upon the successful transition region and coronal explorer instrument. It features four XUV spectral channels spanning the 0.3 to 20 MK temperature range with an angular resolution of approximately 0.27 seconds of arc. We will describe considerations affecting spectral line selection and some details of the characteristics of the instrument.
