Solar X-Ray telescope
Lebedev Physical Institute (FIAN)
Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale (IAS), France
Investigation of the spatial structure and dynamics of the upper solar atmosphere with
narrow-band XUV-images of the Sun.
Solar X-Ray telescope SRT-K includes three optical channels: VR1, VR2 and SP
(VR - "High Resolution", SP - "Wide Angle")
High Resolution Channel VR1:
A Ritchey-Chretien lense (France), 1024x1152 CCD matrix, spectrum bands: 171Å (FeIX-FeXI),
195 Å (FeXII), 284Å (FeXV), 304Å (HeII) , 42' x 42' view angle(full disk)
with angular resolution 1".4 - 2".5/cell and exposition time 0.5 - 100 sec.
High Resolution Channel VR2:
Two paraboloids, 1024x1152 CCD matrix, spectrum bands: 175Å and 304Å with angular resolution
up to 1".8/cell, view angle 30' x 30' and exposition time 0.04 - 100 sec.
Wide Angle Channel SP:
A Ritchey-Chretien lense, 1024x1152 CCD matrix, spectrum band: 304Å
with angular resolution 8"/cell, view angle 2° x 2° (up to 3 RO).
