Paper Abstract

ThomX is a compact Compton based X-ray source under construction at LAL in Orsay (France). The ThomX facility is composed of a 50-70 MeV linac, a transfer line and an 18 meters long storage ring. Compton scattering between 50 MeV, 1 nC electron bunches and 10 mJ laser pulses stacked in a Fabry-Perot cavity results in the production of photons with energies up to 90 keV with a maximum flux of 1013 photons per second. The ThomX building is close to be finished. The installation of the accelerator will start in 2018, followed by the optical table and the Fabry-Perot cavity.
