Paper Abstract

Novel sources of energetic photons are currently studied and developed at the Intense Laser Irradiation Laboratory of Pisa. They include: i) X-rays generated by plasmas produced with nanosecond and picosecond laser pulses. This kind of source has been recently optimised in terms of intensity, repetition rate, monochromaticity, which allowed novel techniques to be successfully tested as micro-radiography and differential mapping of tracing elements. ii) K-a X-ray emission of short duration due to the collision of energetic electrons generated during ultra-short femtosecond laser-solid interactions. iii) Monochromatic and ultra-short X-rays pulses generated via Thomson scattering of intense sub- picosecond pulses by relativistic electron bunches are currently being studied theoretically also with the aid of numerical codes. Electron bunches produced by both conventional beamlines and laser acceleration of electrons in plasmas are considered.
