Extreme light: Driver for a table-top electron accelerator and tunable narrowband hard X-ray light source

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Two high intensity laser pulses from a single laser system are used to both accelerate electrons (0.5-GeV) and generate narrowband (50%) tunable (0.07-9 MeV) x-rays by means of inverse Compton scattering.
