The deflection of high-energy charged particles is an important task of accelerator physics. For deflection of such particles, electromagnetic systems or bent crystals can be used. Both variants have their own advantages and disadvantages. The advantages of bent crystals are compact size, no need for cooling and low electricity consumption. Due to these advantages, bent crystals are used in many accelerating centers for the removal of beams from ring accelerators and for beam collimation.
Keywords: high-energy charged particles, bent crystals, deflection of charged particles.
