Abstract: This paper describes fabrication of sub-collimating X-ray grids that are used in an instrument for the High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager ( HESSI ), a proposed NASA mission that will promote understanding of solar particle acceleration and explosive energy release in the magnetized plasmas at the Sun. The HESSI comprises 12 rotating pairs of high-aspect-ratio, high-Z grids; each pair is separated by 1.7 meters and backed by a single Ge detector.
