Compact, high-brightness and reliable sources in the VUV and the soft X-ray region may be used for numerous applications in medicine and biochemistry. We propose a new approach to produce the intense beams of X-rays in the range of ≤ 500 eV based on compact electron accelerator. We present our first experimental results obtained in the Laser Undulator Compact X-ray facility (LUCX) at KEK: High Energy Accelerator Research Organization devoted to the development of a compact microwave and soft X-ray source based on coherent diffraction radiation and Thompson scattering processes.
