SphinX: a solar fast soft X-ray spectrophotometer


J. Sylwester, M. Kowaliński, S. Kuzin, Yu.D. Kotov



The science goals and construction details are given of a new design, Polish X-ray spectrophotometer. It will be incorporated within the Russian TESIS X-and EUV complex aboard the forthcoming CORONAS-Photon solar mission. SphinX will use PIN silicon detectors for high time resolution (0.01 s) measurements of the solar spectra of quiet and active corona in the range 0.5 - 15 keV. A new filter-fluorescence target concept will be employed to allow for a fast photometry of the solar X-ray flux variations in selected, well defined narrow spectral bands including the Fe XXVI and Fe XXV iron line groups.
