Paper Abstract

The x-ray monitor JEM-X will be flown aboard the ESA mission INTEGRAL for gamma-ray astronomy. It has been conceived to furnish images of celestial sources in fields of the sky 9.1 deg wide in the 3 - 100 keV extended energy band. Careful on- ground calibrations are needed to verify the spectral capabilities of the JEM-X detector. These operations in the 20 - 100 keV energy band are planned to be performed using a hard x-ray (15 - 140 keV) facility operated at University of Ferrara (Italy). We present the apparatus that will be used to carry out these calibrations. In particular we describe a double-reflection fixed-exit system of monochromatization based on silicon crystals that are implemented in the facility.
