An x-ray microcalorimeter is a promising x-ray spectrometer for its extremely good energy resolution and its good detecting efficiency. We are developing an x-ray microcalorimeter for high energy resolution x-ray imaging application. The energy resolution of 43eV(FWHM) at 5.9keV is obtained with our x-ray microcalorimeter. The intrinsic performance of our x-ray microcalorimeter was estimated to be 10.4eV(FWHM) at 5.9keV. This value is more than 10 times better than that of the conventional x-ray CCD.
