Ultrashort X-ray source driven by femtosecond laser pulses
Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. - Hollerithallee 8, D-30419 Hannover, Germany
Accepted: 20 July 2001
A new "indirect" laser-driven ultrashort hard-X-ray source based on the combination of a high-repetition rate femtosecond laser system with a conventional X-ray tube is demonstrated. This hard-X-ray source promises an outstanding performance in terms of average X-ray power, simplicity and handling as compared to "direct" X-ray sources based on high-power laser-produced plasmas.
