Abstract: The summarizing paper sums up more than 40 years of research and development of grazing incidence X-ray optics in the Czech Republic. The origin of astronomical X-ray optics is related to spaceInterkosmos programme Interkosmos. Overall sixty pieces of Wolter I X-ray objectives were manufactured in key cooperation with the Optical Workshop of the Academy of Science in Turnov. Eight of them were used in four different space missions. After the end of Interkosmos project the development of X-ray optics was reoriented to X-ray laboratory tools for crystallography, to Lobster eye systems for wide-angle space monitoring and to Kirkpatrick-Baez imaging system for large X-ray space telescopes. At present, the novel concepts and technologies for X-ray space telescope considered in future ESA, NASA and JAXA missions are being developed
Keywords: Interkosmos; Kirkpatrick-Baez imaging system; X-ray
