Advent of plasma-based transient collisional excitation X-ray lasers allowed us to realize compact coherent X-ray sources, thus opening the way to a wide range of applications. Here we report the observation of unexpected concentric rings in the far-field beam profile at the output of a two-stage plasma-based X-ray laser developed in Japan Atomic Energy Agency, which can be considered as the first manifestation of a mirage phenomenon in X-rays. We have developed a method of solving the Maxwell-Bloch equations, which has allowed to find that the observed phenomenon is due to the emergence in the plasma-amplifier of X-ray mirage in the form of the phase matched coherent virtual point source. The obtained results bring a new insight into physical nature of amplification of X-ray radiation in laser-induced plasma amplifiers and open new opportunities for X-ray plasma diagnostics and extreme UV lithography.

Laser-driven X-ray sources are widely used in probing substances for new material development etc. Besides the laser-driven sources have potentials to downsizing and ultra-short duration, we carry out the coherent X-ray research, i.e., soft X-ray lasers and higher order harmonics generation (HHG) and their applications. In the source study, the first observation of X-ray mirage and HHG from relativistic plasma are presented. In the applications, we show the surface dynamics of fs laser ablation of metal observed by the X-ray interferometer. Finally we mention the prospects for the future: By the financial support from government, we started upgrade of J-KAREN laser toward PW level to realize keV coherent X-ray and high energy particle beams. By use of this high peak power laser and another high average power lasers, we will explore the possibility of ultra-short-duration short-wavelength lasers and open up new applications of high average power coherent X-rays.

Laser-driven particle and radiation sources have unique and attractive characteristics such as ultra-short duration, high peak brilliance and potentials of downsizing of the source etc. Recent advent of high peak power lasers toward peta-watt (PW) level makes it possible for us to realize these particle and radiation sources with higher energy region, and now we are on the stage to investigate the mechanisms in detail and to start the applications of these novel sources. In this presentation, first of all, recent research activities in major high peak power laser facilities in Japan will be introduced, and then we will present research highlights in the last few years on the source development and the applications using high peak power lasers in Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) based upon Japan-Russia collaborations.
