We are currently developing a compact monochromatic X‐ray source based on laser‐electron collision. To realize remarkably compact‐, high‐intensity‐ and highly‐stable‐system, we adopt an X‐band multi‐bunch liner accelerator (linac) and reliable Q‐switch laser. The X‐ray yields by the multi‐bunch electron beam and Q‐switch Nd: YAG laser of 1.4 J/10 ns (FWHM) (532 nm, second harmonic) is 107 photons/RF‐pulse (108 photons/sec for 10 Hz operation). The injector of the system consists of a 3.5‐cell X‐band thermionic cathode RF gun and an alpha magnet. So far we have achieved beam generation from the X‐band thermionic cathode RF gun. The peak beam energy is 2 MeV. This experimental high energy (∼2 MeV) beam generation from the X‐band thermionic cathode RF gun is the first in the world. In this paper, we describe the system of the Compton scattering X‐ray source based on the X‐band linac, experimental results of X‐band thermionic cathode RF gun and the details of the experimental setup for Compton scattering X‐ray generation that are under construction.
