A compact X-ray source via laser Compton scattering is required for biological, medical and industrial science because it has many benefits about generated X-rays such as short pulse, quasi-monochromatic, energy tunability and good directivity. Our X-ray source is conventionally the single collision system between an electron pulse and a laser pulse. To increase X-ray yield, we have developed a multi-collision system with a multi-bunch electron beam and a laser optical cavity. The multi-bunch electron beam has been successfully generated from a Cs2Te photocathode rf gun using a multi-pulse UV laser system. The laser optical cavity will be built like the regenerative amplification including the collision point between the electron pulse and the laser pulse to enhance the laser peak power per 1 collision on laser Compton scattering (LCS).
