Paper Abstract

The results of theoretical and numerical considerations of linear Compton scattering are used to evaluate characteristics of X-rays produced by collision between a low emittance electron beam and intensive laser light in an X-rays generator NESTOR of NSC KIPT. Two main generation modes have been under consideration at preliminary NESTOR design. There are the operation mode for medicine 33.4 keV X-rays production using 43 MeV electron beam and Nd:YAG laser beam and higher energy X-rays production mode providing X-rays with energy up to 900 keV with 225 MeV electron beam and Nd:YAG laser beam. It is supposed to use an optical cavity for laser beam accumulation of about 2.6 m long and an interaction angle of about 3° in both operation modes. A few more operation modes provide ossibility to expand operation range of NESTOR. Using interaction angle 10° and 150° along with optical resonator 42 or 21 cm long and the second mode of laser light it is possible to produce X-rays in energy range from a few keV till 1.5 MeV. The intensity and spectral brightness of the X-rays is expected to be ~ 1013 phot/s and ~ 1013 phot/s/mm2/mrad2/0.01%BW respectively.
