Compton scattering x-ray sources driven by laser wakefield acceleration

Abstract : Recent laser wakefield acceleration experiments have demonstrated the generation of femtosecond, nano-Coulomb, low emittance, nearly monokinetic relativistic electron bunches of sufficient quality to produce bright, tunable, ultrafast x-rays via Compton scattering. Design parameters for a proof-of-concept experiment are presented using a three-dimensional Compton scattering code and a laser-plasma interaction particle-in-cell code modeling the wakefield acceleration process; x-ray fluxes exceeding 10^21 s^-1 are predicted, with a peak brightness >10^19 photons=mm^2 mrad^2 s 0:1% bandwidth).
