New results on the deflection of fully stripped 32.8 TeV/c Pb ions in a bent Si crystal at the CERN-SPS are reported. Deflection efficiencies above 10% have been measured for deflection angles in the range 4-9 mrad. The effect of particle losses due to interaction in the crystal and other systematic errors have been carefully investigated. The experimental results are in agreement with theoretical calculations.
