Polarized X-ray pulses at 0.6 Å have been generated via head-on collision of a laser pulse from the high-field laser facility at Daresbury with a 30 MeV electron bunch in the ALICE energy recovery linear accelerator. The angular distribution of the backscattered X rays was obtained in single-shot using a scintillation screen. The temporal profile of the X ray yield as a function of the time delay between the laser pulse and electron bunch was measured and agreed well with that expected from the collision point dependence of the laser-electron beam longitudinal overlap.
