Abstract

The synchrotron x-ray source based on the betatron oscillation of a relative electron in a laser-produced ion channel was investigated. Nonlinear Thompson scattering radiation emitted by the electrons of the plasma oscillating in the intense laser field was also proposed. The brightness of produced x-ray radiation was estimated from the pulse duration and the size of the x-ray source. The results show that the ultrashort-duration pulses of x-ray beams could be produced by the synchrotron radiation mechanism in a compact device.
