Abstract: Thomson scattering of laser pulses onto ultrarelativistic e-bunches is becoming an advanced source of tunable, quasi-monochromatic, and ultrashort X/gamma radiation. Sources aimed at reaching a high flux of scattered photons need to be driven by high-brightness e-beams, whereas extremely short (femtosecond scale or less) sources need to make femtosecond-long e-beams that collide with the laser pulses. In this paper, we explore the performance of the PLASMONX TS source in several operating regimes, including preliminary results on a source based on e-bunches produced by laser wakefield acceleration and controlled injection via density down ramp.
