Abstract
We report preliminary results on the performance of the x- ray apparatus built to calibrate the x-ray monitor JEM-X aboard the INTEGRAL satellite for gamma-ray astronomy. JEM-X is based on a position sensitive xenon detector operative from 3 to 60 keV. It will make use of coded mask to get imaging capabilities. The x-ray apparatus allows to scan the x-ray detector with a monochromatic beam obtained with the use of a double crystal diffractometer. The current energy range of the beam can be chosen from about 10 keV to 120 keV while its direction is fixed independently of the photon energy.
