Abstract

We propose a high-time-resolution, high-spectral-resolution X-ray telescope that uses transition-edge sensors (TES) as detectors and collector optics to direct the X-rays onto the focal plane, providing a large effective area in a small satellite. The key science driver of the instrument is to study neutron stars and accreting black holes. The proposed instrument is built upon two technologies that are already at high TRL: TES X-ray detectors and collector optics.
