Abstract A study of a Compton source for X-rays in the ELSA facility is in line with the RADIOTHOMX project (THALES Communication, Colombes, France). The goal of this project is to develop a compact device to deliver an intense flux of monochromatic X-rays for medical applications. Thanks to its low emittance ( 3 μ m normalized r.m.s) with high current electron beam, the 19 MeV electron linear accelerator ELSA (CEA, DAM, DIF, Arpajon, France) is a good candidate to study Compton interaction.
