The possibility of using soft X-rays to image the sun has been studied in the Astronomical Institute at Tübingen. This activity was stimulated by previous theoretical work on solar X-rays by G. Elwert of Tübingen University and by experimental work of the microminiaturisation group of the Institute of Applied Physics who could provide Fresnel-Microzoneplates [1] for soft X-ray optics.
