Paper Abstract

We report the results of experiments in which a single laser system is used to both accelerate electrons (0.5 GeV) and generate hard x-rays, by means of inverse Compton scattering. The x-rays are shown to have narrow bandwidth (50%) over a wide range of photon energies (50 keV -- 9 MeV). Results on the application of this novel source to x-ray radiography with high-resolution (< 5 micron) are also discussed.
