At Waseda University, we have succeeded in generating soft X-rays based on laser Compton scattering. The energies are within "Water Window" part (250~500eV) where the X-ray absorption coefficient of water is much less than that of constituent elements of living body such as carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. For this reason, it is expected to apply to a bio-microscope with which we can observe living cells without dehydration. To improve the generation system, we remodeled our collision chamber and adopted 3-pass flash lamp amplifier system. With these modifications, we achieved high S/N ratio. The photon number detected by MCP was 278/pulse, tenfold increase of that in last year. Moreover, we succeeded in generating soft X-rays stably for more than 10 hours. Now we are planning to measure two-dimensional distribution of the X-rays by CCD. In this conference, experimental results and future plans will be reported.
