|Abstract:||The Italian New Hard X-ray Mission (NHXM) is an evolution of the HEXIT-Sat concept, extending up to 80 keV the fine imaging capability today available only at E<10 keV, with the further addition of photoelectric imaging polarimetry. NHXM consists of four identical mirrors, with a 10 m focal length, achieved after launch by means of a deployable structure. Three of the four telescopes will have at their focus three identical spectro-imaging cameras, while a X-ray imaging polarimeter will be placed at the focus of the fourth. In order to ensure a low and stable background, NHXM will be place on a low Earth equatorial orbit. NHXM will provide a real breakthrough on a number of hot astrophysical issues, broadly falling under two main topics: i) censing the black holes in the Universe and probing the physics of accretion in the most diverse conditions; ii) investigating the particle acceleration mechanisms at work in different contexts, and the effects of radiative transfer in highly magnetized plasmas and strong gravitational fields|
