Abstract
A laboratory system with a crystal concentrator for focusing γ-rays has been developed. The facility has been designed in particular for tests of diffraction systems based on small crystals in the Bragg and Laue configurations. Two radioactive sources (Co-57 and Ba-133) are being used to cover the energy range from 30 to 400 keV. The diffracted beam is detected using Germanium (HPGe) and CdZnTe detectors. We report on the preliminary characterization of crystal mosaicities for different crystals.
