We have applied the direct demodulation technique to XMM-Newton EPIC images to achieve a higher spatial resolution; the restored images are compared with Chandra images. With the improved images we can extract spectra of fine structures in XMM-Newton data.
Key words: techniques: high angular resolution, techniques: image processing
