Status of Xtend telescope onboard X-Ray Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission (XRISM)

Abstract

Xtend is one of the two telescopes onboard the X-ray imaging and spectroscopy mission (XRISM), which was launched on September 7th, 2023. Xtend comprises the Soft X-ray Imager (SXI), an X-ray CCD camera, and the X-ray Mirror Assembly (XMA), a thin-foil-nested conically approximated Wolter-I optics. Before the launch of XRISM, we conducted a month-long spacecraft thermal vacuum test. The performance verification of the SXI was successfully carried out in a course of multiple thermal cycles of the spacecraft. About a month after the launch of XRISM, the SXI has been carefully activated and the soundness of its functionality has been checked by a step-by-step process. We here review these pre- and post-launch status of Xtend. A few initial results verifying the Xtend performance will be also presented.
