Design aspects of grazing angle multilayer mirrors for soft γ-rays
If sensitive enough, future missions for nuclear astrophysics will be a great help in understanding supernovae explosions. In contrast to coded-mask instruments, both crystal diffraction lenses and grazing angle mirrors offer a possibility to construct a sensitive instrument to detect γ-ray lines in supernovae. We report on possible implementations of grazing angle mirrors and simulations carried out to determine their performance.
