Paper Abstract

A Laue lens for focusing X-ray photons with energies above 60 keV for astrophysical applications is being developed. The lens is based on mosaic crystals of Cu (111) produced at the Institute Laue-Langevin. A feasibility study has allowed to establish lens geometry and crystal properties required. The test of the crystals has provided very satisfactory results. We are now developing a Demonstration Model (DM) of the lens in order to establish the best assembling technique of the crystals. We will discuss the status of the project and its prospects.
