Paper Abstract

The existing synchrotron radiation sources and the fourth generation x-ray sources, which are projected at SLAC, USA, and DESY, Germany, are very expensive. For this reason the search for the novel and cheaper sources using various types of radiation produced by 2-20 MeV electrons available at many hospitals, universities and firms in various countries is of great interest. A review of the physics, history, new theoretical and experimental results and of some applications is given with a purpose to consider the possibilities of construction of small tabletop sources of quasimonochromatic X-ray photon beams necessary for scientific, industrial, medicine and other applications.
