Paper Abstract

A high brightness x-ray source has been obtained by focusing the large aperture excimer laser HERCULES on a solid target with a laser intensity of more than 1013W/cm2. The characteristics of the x-ray source for different laser time evolution in the range 6-120 ns are investigated. Experimental result on specific applications of the source, like the soft x-ray contact microscopy and the low photon energy radiobiology will be presented.
