  Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) is a promising approach towards achieving high intensity, directional beams of quasi-monochromatic gammas, which could offer unique capabilities in research, medical and security applications. Practicality implementation of ICS sources, however, depends on the ability to achieve high peak brightness (~0.1-1.0 ICS photons per interacting electron), while increasing electron-laser beam interaction rate to about 10,000 cps. We discuss the results of the initial experimental work at the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) at BNL to demonstrate ICS interaction in a pulse-train regime, using a novel laser recirculation scheme termed Recirculation Injection by Nonlinear Gating (RING). Initial experimental results and outlook are presented.
