At Waseda University, we have started a new research project named "High-Tech Research Center Project" which is supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. In this project, a laser photo-cathode rf-gun with 1.6 acceleration cells has been installed for production of low emittance and short bunched electron beam. The high quality electron beam is very powerful tool for the study on radiation physics, radiation chemistry, material science etc. Development of pulsed X-ray generation by the inverse Compton scattering between high quality electron beam and laser pulse obtained from an all-solid-state Nd:YLF laser system will be started in 2001 fiscal year. The system will be applied to the pulse radiolysis experiments for the studies on radiation physics and chemistry. In this paper, we will describe the X-ray generation experiment at Waseda University.
