In this paper we consider the x-ray production by Compton backscattering of intracavity visible free-electron laser (FEL) radiation. We discuss the interplay between the build-up of the laser in the cavity and the backscattered signal including the effects of the e-beam degradation (energy spread) induced by the FEL interaction.
