Ultrahigh Brilliance Multi-MeV γ-Ray Beams from Nonlinear Relativistic Thomson Scattering.

Abstract

We report on the generation of a narrow divergence (θ_{γ}<2.5  mrad), multi-MeV (E_{max}≈18  MeV) and ultrahigh peak brilliance (>1.8×10^{20}  photons s^{-1} mm^{-2}  mrad^{-2} 0.1% BW) γ-ray beam from the scattering of an ultrarelativistic laser-wakefield accelerated electron beam in the field of a relativistically intense laser (dimensionless amplitude a_… (More)
