The characteristics of $$K$$$$_{alpha}$$ X-ray sources generated by p-polarized femtosecond laser-solid interactions are experimentally studied in the relativistic regime. By use of knife-edge image technique and a single-photon-counting X-ray CCD camera, we obtain the source size, the spectrum and the conversion efficiency of the $$K$$$$_{alpha}$$ X-ray sources. The experimental results show that the conversion efficiency of $$K$$$$_{alpha}$$ photons reaches an optimum value 7.08$$times$$10$$^{-6}$$/sr at the laser intensity of 1.6$$times$$10$$^{18}$$W/cm$$^{2}$$, which is different from the Reich's simulation results. We find that about 10% of laser energy is converted into the forward hot electrons at the laser intensity of 1.6$$times$$10$$^{18}$$W/cm$$^{2}$$.
