A nuclear material detection system (NMDS) using the quasi-monochromatic gamma-ray beam from a laser Compton scattering (LCS) source is proposed for the container inspection, where nuclear resonance fluorescence method is to be employed for the specific isotope identification such as U-235. In the system an electron beam of good quality at about 220-MeV must be provided for LCS. One of the most promising electron source is a compact electron accelerator named racetrack microtron (RTM). Some concepts of RTM suitable for NMDS and expected beam qualities will be presented.
