Abstract

The combination of a high repetition rate (1 kHz), high power (TW-class, 100 fs) Ti:sapphire laser and a high gradient (≅75 MeV/m), high brightness (ε≅ 3 π-mm-mrad) photoinjector/electron accelerator (15-100 MeV, ≅1 nC per pulse) is predicted to produce high intensity (≅1011 photons/sec), monoenergetic (<10% BW) X-rays tunable from 10 to 100 keV. The small source size (a≅10 μm) permits significant magnification (up to 8x) to be employed in imaging applications.
