Electron–photon scattering, or Thomson/Compton scattering, is one of the most fundamental mechanisms in electrodynamics, underlying laboratory and astrophysical sources of high-energy X-rays. After a century of studies, it is only recently that sufficiently high electromagnetic field strengths have been available to experimentally study the nonlinear regime of the scattering in the laboratory. This can act as a new generation of accelerator-based hard X/γ-ray sources driven exclusively by laser light. One ultrahigh intense CPA laser pulses will act as two means: first used to accelerate electrons by laser driven wake field (LWFA) to hundreds MeV, and second, from split beam or LWFA-leftover energy reflected by plasma mirror, to collide on the electron for the generation of X/γ-rays. Such all-laser-driven X/γ source have recently been demonstrated to be energetic, tunable, narrow/broad in bandwidth, short pulsed and well collimated. Such characteristics, especially from a compact source, are highly advantageous for numerous advanced X-ray applications. Moreover, the scattering interaction can act a test bed for high-field QED study. Also, preliminary plan of laser wake-field accelerator and radiation source in high-power laser facility in SJTU and TDLI will be presented.
