Abstract

A compact and high quality x-ray source is required for various field, such as medical diagnosis, drug manufacturing and biological sciences. Laser-Compton based x-ray source that consist of a compact electron storage ring and a pulsed-laser super-cavity is one of the solutions of a compact x-ray source. Pulsed-laser super-cavity has been developed at KEK-ATF for a compact high brightness x-ray source. The pulsed-laser super-cavity enables to make high peak power and small waist laser at the collision point with the electron beam. Recently, 357MHz mode-locked Nd:VAN laser pulses can be stacked stably in a 420mm long Fabry-Perot cavity with 2.5kW average power in our R&D. On the other hand, we have succeeded to stack the pulsed amplified laser in the super-cavity. This indicates that the number of X-ray is multiplied due to the gain in the amplification system to synchronize the pulsed pump to the beam. In view of this successful result, we have started an X-ray generation experiment using a super-cavity and a multi-bunch electron beam at KEK-LUCX. Development of the super-cavity and the results of X-ray generation experiment will be presented at the conference.
