Abstract

We have been developing a pulsed-laser storage technique in a super-cavity for a compact x-ray sources. The pulsed-laser super-cavity enables to make high peak power and small waist laser at the collision point with the electron beam. We already obtained a pulse-train x-rays through the laser-Compton scattering between a multi-bunch electron beam and an optical super-cavity. And also, we performed a X-ray imaging via laser-Compton X-ray. On these successful results, we decided to upgrade our system for increasing X-ray flux by 3-order of magnitudes for practical use. For an optical cavity, we designed 4-mirrors bowtie cavity in order to increase the power. On the other hand, electron accelerator was also upgraded to increase the bunch number in the train. We use 3.6cells rf-gun and 12cell standing wave booster linac. As a result, 2-order increase of X-ray flux was achieved. Design of upgraded our laser-Compton X-ray source, the results of X-ray experiments and future prospective will be presented at the conference.
