  Betatron x-ray radiation, driven by electrons from laser-wakefield acceleration, has unique properties to probe high energy density (HED) plasmas and warm dense matter. This source is produced when relativistic electrons oscillate in the plasma wake of a laser pulse. Its properties are similar to that of a synchrotron, with a 1000-fold shorter pulse. This invited talk will focus on the experimental challenges and results related to the development of betatron radiation for applications at large scale HED science laser facilities, including results of recent experiments performed at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at SLAC and the Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
