  A nuclear material detection system using the quasi-monochromatic gamma-ray beam from a laser Compton Backscattering source has been proposed for the container inspection, where nuclear resonance fluorescence method would be employed for the specific isotope identification such as U-235. In the system an electron beam of good quality at about 220 MeV for the laser Compton backscattering is required. One candidate for such the practical use is a racetrack microtron which design is based on the existing 150 MeV microtron at JAEA.
