Abstract

The idea of measurement of X-ray lines Doppler shifts in spectra of the Sun, applied in DIOGENESS spectrometer, was previously developed and verified in rocket experiment with RDR X-ray Dopplerometer (Vertical-11 Rocket, 1981). Upon the obtained results two X-ray DIOGENESS spectrometers have been manufactured; the first one was operated aboard the CORONAS-I satellite (launch in 1994), while the second was operated aboard the CORONAS-F.
