Abstract

The relevance of pre-flight calibration of space-born instruments is widely recognized. As an energy region of interest shifts to hard X-rays in these years, measurement setup becomes difficult to be afforded or maintained by a laboratory- or small-collaboration-based resources. In 10 to 100 keV region X-ray source that is bright and monochromatic enough to calibrate optics in detail is no longer available other than at synchrotron facility. Focal length becomes longer and this is another aspect that is beyond capabilities of soft-X-ray-oriented facilities. The hard X-ray instruments for balloon program have been characterized at synchrotron facility SPring-8/BL20B2 in Japan. SPring-8 is one of the world's brightest third generation synchrotron radiation facility. BL20B2 is specialized for medical and imaging experiment, and has 200m-long transport tube. Measurement at BL20B2 has great advantages such as extremely high flux, large sized and less divergent beam, and monochromatic beam covering entire hard X-ray region from 8 to 120keV. 16m-long experiment hutch is capable of long focal length of hard X-ray telescope. Pt/C multilayer-supermirror hard X-ray telescopes, position-sensitive scintillation counter and scintillator-deposited CCD, have been characterized at the facility. Instrumentation of the facility and some of measurement results are presented.
