Abstract

We present the hard X-ray generation of K\(_{\alpha }\) lines in high-Z elements – platinum and tungsten – targets using the kHz repetition rate TW-class 850 nm, 10 fs laser pulses. The estimated Pt and W K\(_{\alpha _{1}}\) X-ray photon flux from the recorded spectrum was 1.3 \(\times\) 10\(^{7}\) and 1.4 \(\times\) 10\(^{7}\) photons/s, respectively, in 2\(\pi\) solid angle. The calculated values of the photon conversion efficiency were 1.3 \(\times\) 10\(^{-8}\) for Pt K\(_{\alpha _{1}}\) and 9 \(\times\) 10\(^{-9}\) for W K\(_{\alpha _{1}}\). The additional experimental bremsstrahlung-induced dose measurements and modeling were performed. The correspondence between experimental and modeling data for the dose evaluation was found. The dose rate up to 25 \(\upmu\)Sv/h was measured on the top of the X-ray generation chamber.
