Abstract

Experimental results on high-energy beam deflection by means of a bent germanium crystal are presented. Record deflection efficiencies of 60% have been found for 450 GeV/c protons at small angles. The results obtained with 200 and 450 GeV/c positively charged particles are well described by a classical model, giving confidence in predictions for other crystals and different beam momenta.
