Paper Abstract

Compact tuneable sources of ultrashort hard x-ray pulses can be realized by Thomson scattering, taking advantage of the comparatively short wavelength of a scattered laser pulse with respect to the period length of conventional undulators. Here, we present a detailed analysis and optimization of the efficiency of linear and non-linear Thomson scattering when the process is driven with relativistic laser pulses and when the conventional accelerator is replaced by a laser-plasma wakefield accelerator.
