Astrophysics with LOBSTER

R. Hudec, V. Simon, L. Svéda, L. Pina, A. Inneman


Abstract We report on astrophysical aspects of fully innovative very wide-field X-ray telescopes with high sensitivity. The prototypes are very promising, allowing the proposals for space projects with very wide-field Lobster-eye X-ray optics to be considered. The novel telescopes will monitor the sky with unprecedented sensitivity and angular resolution of order of 1 arcmin. They are expected to contribute essentially to study of various astrophysical objects such as AGN, SNe, Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), X-ray flashes (XRFs), galactic binary sources, stars, CVs, X-ray novae, various transient sources, etc.
