Extremely High-Order Multiphoton Thomson Scattering: Synchrotron Hard X-Rays from Ultra-Intense Laser Light

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A multi-terawatt laser system generates two synchronized ultra-intense near-infrared light pulses. One pulse Thomson back-scatters from the relativistic electrons that are laser-wakefield-accelerated by the other pulse. Single x-ray photons are created when greater than 500 laser photons are nonlinearly scattered by individual free electrons.
