Abstract

The X-Ray Telescope (XRT) experiment on-board the Japanese satellite SOLAR-B (launch in 2006) aimed atproviding full Sun field of view at∼1.5” angular resolution, will be equipped with two wheels of focal-planefilters to select spectral features of X-ray emission from the Solar corona, and a front-end filter to significantlyreduce the visible light contamination. We present the results of the X-ray calibrations of the XRT flight filtersperformed at the X-ray Astronomy Calibration and Testing (XACT) facility of INAF-OAPA. We describe theinstrumental set-up, the adopted measurement technique, and present the transmission vs. energy and positionmeasurements.
