X-ray photometry

I describe a method for synthesizing photometric passbands for use with current and future X-ray instruments. The method permits the standardisation of X-ray passbands and thus X-ray photometry between different instruments and missions. The method is illustrated by synthesizing a passband in the XMM-Newton EPIC pn which is similar to the ROSAT PSPC 0.5-2 keV band.
