Abstract
The Energetic X-ray Survey Telesccope (EXIST) is under study for the propsed Black Hole Finder Probe, one of the three Einstein Probe missions in NASA's proposed Beyond Einstein Program. EXIST would have the capability to survey the full sky at 5-600 keV and enable black holes to be surveyed and studied on all scales. In particular, GRB's will be located at sensitivities and bandwidths much greater than with previous missions and likely yield constraints on the massive population III black holes. The measurements of hard X-ray polarization, thus far relatively unexplored, could also provide important clues about the GRB progenitor. In this paper, we report on the preliminary estimates to the sensitivity to GRB polarization with EXIST.
