Lobster Eye Telescopes as X-ray All-Sky Monitors

R. Hudec, L. Švéda, L. Pina, A. Inneman, V. Šimon

Abstract

We report on the proposal of an All-Sky X-Ray Monitor based on
wide-field X-ray telescopes with high sensitivity. 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.
