Title: All optical ultrafast synchrotron hard x-ray source

Abstract

Collimated beams of radiation can now be generated in the X-ray spectral range using laser systems. These new tools may provide efficient probing radiation for the analysis of dense plasmas and ultrafast atomic dynamics phenomena in the matter. Using relativistic laser-matter interaction, we have shown that X-ray radiation can be emitted within a collimated 20 mrad cone, in the spectral range of few keV, and with the additional unique properties to be ultrafast (100 fs timescale) and perfectly synchronized with the driving laser system.
