We describe our system for generating intense beams of hard X-rays optimized for high throughput phase contrast plant imaging and rapid identification of phenotype in a plant production setting. High peak and average power X-ray beams are generated in a novel regime of ultra-relativistic self-guiding. X-ray beams at 40keV with 4μJ per pulse (30keV – 40keV band) and an average power of 10μW (30keV – 40keV band) are currently produced and used to demonstrate the potential of the LWFA based X-ray sources.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
