We have been developing a compact X-ray source based on Laser Compton scattering(LCS) at Laser Undulator Compact X-ray source(LUCX) accelerator in KEK. Our aim is to obtain a clear X-ray image in a shorter period of times and the target number of X-ray is 1.7x107 photons/pulse with 10% bandwidth. In the accelerator, an electron beam with the energy of 18-24 MeV is generated by an S-band normal conducting accelerator. The beam is collided with a laser pulse stacked in a 4-mirror planar optical cavity and then 6-10 keV X-rays are generated by LCS. Presently, the generation of X-rays with the number of 3x106 photons/pulse at the collision point has been achieved. X-ray imaging test such as refraction contrast images and phase contrast imaging with Talbot interferometer has also started. To increase the intensity of X-rays, we are continuing the tuning of the electron beam and the optical cavity because the exposure time of X-ray imaging is too long now. We are also planning to increase the beam energy by appending the accelerating tube. In this conference, the recent results and upgrade plan in LUCX will be reported.
