We propose an Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) experiment, which will investigate nonlinear properties of the scattering utilizing the terawatt CO2 laser system with various polarizations in Neptune Laboratory at UCLA. When the normalized amplitude of the vector potential a0 is larger than unity the scattering occurs in the nonlinear region; therefore, higher harmonics are also produced. We present a calculation tool for the Double Differential Spectrum (DDS) distribution and total number of photons produced for both head-on and 90° scattering. We decided to do the experiment at 90° to avoid complications due to strong diffraction of the incoming laser. We discuss the electron and laser beam parameters for the experiment. © 2004 American Institute of Physics
