Diffraction of γ-rays by a flat Si crystal has been demonstrated using a high flux 60Co source with an intensity of 2.3 TBq. The diffraction intensities of the γ-rays with energies of 1.17 and 1.33 MeV have been measured as a function of the rotation angle of the crystal. Three peaks corresponding to the Si(440) and Si(220) diffractions for 1.17MeV and the Si(440) diffraction for 1.33MeV have been measured. The heights and shapes of these three peaks are well reproduced by taking into account Bragg's law and the experimental geometry.
