Abstract

Collective effects in the radiation emission via Thomson back-scattering of an intense optical laser pulse by high brightness electron beams are analyzed. The micro-bunching of the electron beam on the scale of the wavelength of the emitted radiation and the consequent free-electron-laser instability may significantly enhance the number of photons emitted. Scaling-laws of the radiation properties, both in the collective and incoherent spontaneous regimes versus laser and electron beam parameters are discussed in the framework of the one-dimensional model.
