ThomX project -- a future intense lab-size Compton x-ray source: status and expected performances (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Kevin Dupraz; Loïc Amoudry

Paper Abstract

ThomX is a new generation Compact Compton Source. It is under installation in the Laboratory of Linear Accelerator at Orsay. The first beams is expected at the end of 2019. The aim of ThomX is to demonstrate the feasibility of an intense and Compact (lab-size) X-ray Source based on the Compton Scattering. The performances are mostly driven by the laser optical system which is above the state of the art of the stored laser power. Firstly, this article present the machine status. Then, the issues and limits of the laser system are discussed. Finally, the expected performances for the next years and the possible experiments that can be made with this new machine are detailed.
