Abstract

Compton sources are readily available for research as a compact and economical complement to synchrotron light sources. Moving this technology from the R&D phase to applications requires increasing their repetition rate and average brightness. We review innovative concepts and future capabilities of CO2-laser based Compton sources that answer these challenges.

Summary

Compton sources have significant potential as a complement to synchrotron light sources that can offer compact and economical x-ray tools, which are readily available for research. Moving this technology from the R&D phase to applications requires increasing their repetition rate and average brightness. Based on recent achievements and anticipated progress of CO2 laser technology, we review innovative concepts and future capabilities of CO2-based Compton sources that answer these challenges. Looking beyond this, we will see how a long wavelength of CO2 laser can improve coherency of Compton sources and move them towards applications in next generation linear colliders.
