Short pulsed X-rays have been experimentally generated by 90 degree Thomson scattering of 2 TW, 90 fs laser pulses by 17 MeV electron beams. A few 100 fs X-ray pulses have been generated via backward Thomson scattering from a few 100 fs electron bunches made by a bunch compression chicane. 100 TW laser and microtron as a 150 MeV electron beam source will be prepared, and the laser and the electron beam will be interacted as a hard X-ray source. Soft X-ray may be generated via laser-plasma nonlinear Thomson scatterings as a source of X-ray microscope.
