Schindler, Sabine; Doepp, Andreas; Ding, Hao; Gilljohann, Max; Götzfried, Johannes; Karsch, Stefan (2019): Tunable X-ray source by Thomson scattering during laser-wakefield acceleration. In: Laser Acceleration of Electrons, Protons, and Ions V, Vol. 11037, UNSP 110370N

We report results on all-optical Thomson scattering intercepting the acceleration process in a laser wakefield accelerator. We show that the pulse collision position can be detected using transverse shadowgraphy which also facilitates alignment. As the electron beam energy is evolving inside the accelerator, the emitted spectrum changes with the scattering position. Such a configuration could be employed as accelerator diagnostic as well as reliable setup to generate x-rays with tunable energy.
