A new generation of accelerator-based hard X/γ-ray sources driven exclusively by laser light will be discussed. One ultrahigh intense CPA laser pulses will be split into two pulse: first used to accelerate electrons by laser-driven plasma wake-field to hundreds-MeV, and second, to collide on the electron for the generation of X/γ-rays by inverse Compton scattering (ICS).

Such all-laser-driven X/γ source have recently been demonstrated to be energetic, tunable, narrow/broad in bandwidth, short pulsed and well collimated. Simulation show orbital angular momentum can also be added onto these sources. Such characteristics, especially from a compact source, are highly advantageous for numerous advanced X-ray applications. Moreover, preliminary plan of laser wake-field accelerator and radiation source in ELI-beamlines will be presented.
