7.6 × 106 x-ray photons per 3.5 ps pulse are detected within a 1.8-2.3 Å spectral window during a proof-of-principle laser synchrotron source experiment. A 600 MW CO2 laser interacted in a head-on collision with a 60 MeV, 140 A, 3.5 ps electron beam. Both beams were focused to a σ = 32 μm spot. Our next plan is to demonstrate 10 10 x-ray photons per pulse using a CO2 laser of ∼1 TW peak power.
