Abstract

We have been developing a compact X-ray source via laser-Compton scattering (LCS) at KEK-LUCX (Laser Undulator Compact X-ray source) facility. The LUCX system is based on S-band normal conducting linac with an energy of 30 MeV and optical enhancement cavity for photon target. As a photon target, we invented a burst mode laser pulse storage technique for a normal conducting linac, which enables to store the high power laser pulses at the timing of electron bunches. The peak storage power exceeds to more than 250 kW with 357 MHz repetition. Electron linac is under operation with multi-bunch mode, 1000 bunches/train with 600 pC charge in each bunches. We have succeeded to produce 1000 pulse/train LCS X-ray train. Combining high repetition rate electron linac and burst mode optical enhancement cavity, more than 109 ph./sec/10% b.w. flux would be possible. In this conference, the introduction of our test facility LUCX, recent experimental results, and future prospective including normal conducting LCS X-ray source will be presented.
