  An intense, quasi-monochromatic hard X-ray beam has been generated via the laser-Compton scattering of a picosecond electron bunch with an intense femtosecond TW laser. A s-band linear accelerator of 40 MeV and Ti:Sa femtosecond TW laser were used to generate X-rays. We plan to increase the X-ray yield up to two-orders than the current one until FY2008. Our recent R&D for that purpose are generation of multi-pulse electron beam using a photo-cathode rf-gun, and multi-pulse laser cavity for Compton scattering. We briefly describe the specifications of the electron accelerator and the laser systems, together with the developments and modifications being undergone.

  A compact soft and hard X-ray source via laser Compton scattering is required for biological, medical and industrial science because it has many benefits about generated X-rays such as short pulse, quasi-monochromatic, energy tunability and good directivity. Our X-ray source is conventionally the single collision system between an electron pulse and a laser pulse. To increase X-ray yield, we have developed a multi-collision system with a multi-bunch electron beam and a laser optical cavity. The multi-bunch beam will be generated from a Cs-Te photocathode rf gun sytem using a multi-pulse UV laser. The laser optical cavity will be built like the regenerative amplification including a collision point between the electron pulse and the laser pulse to enhance the laser peak power per 1 collision on laser Compton scattering. In this conference, we will describe the results of preliminary experiments for the multi-collision system and future plans.
