Speaker: Salvatore Sciortino (INAF)

Titolo: The Athena predicted PSF and ELSP and their effects on X-ray (stellar) studies

In the past 12-18 months improved descriptions of the predicted Athena PSF
(Point Spread Function) and of the predicted Athena/XIFU ELSF (Extended Line
Spread Function) have become available and their effects has been investigated by more detailed simulations of WFI and XIFU based studies. I will discuss and illustrate the most relevant outcomes of this investigations and their possible effect on (stellar) X-ray studies and more in general the currently predicted
capability (and related limit) of future Athena observations.
