Abstract

The Advanced Telescope for High ENergy Astrophysics (Athena) is a Cosmic Vision L-class mission of the European Space Agency selected for launch in the early 2030s1. The observatory features a single X-ray telescope with a 12 m focal length. The focusing Wolter-I optics is based on Silicon Pore Optics (SPO) technology2. The Athena science objectives require a high performance in the 0.3-12 keV range which is obtained with X-ray reflective thin films.
