26 September 2013 Results of the simulations of the petal/lens as part of the LAUE project
Author Affiliations +
In the context of the LAUE project for focusing hard X-/gamma rays, a petal of the complete lens is being assembled at the LARIX facility in the Department of Physics and Earth Science of the University of Ferrara. The lens petal structure is composed of bent Germanium and Gallium Arsenide crystals in transmission geometry. We present the expectations derived from a mathematical model of the lens petal. The extension of the model for the complete LAUE project in the 90 – 600 keV energy range will be discussed as well. A quantitative analysis of the results of these simulations is also presented.
