Laser-plasma technology has the potential to provide compact sources of bright femtosecond X-ray, which may soon serve as an alternative to their conventional counterparts. Proof-of- principle experiments have impressively demonstrated the sources’ prospects, but poor stability and tunability still limit their scope of applicability. Conventional systems have achieved their remarkable control over the source by progressive improvement of the discrete stages of injection, acceleration, beam transport and radiation generation. By applying a similar approach for laser-plasma sources, the control over the laser-plasma source is significantly improved.
