The development of novel Compton/Thomson sources to generate high-brilliance, high-spectral-density, tunable and fully polarized γ ray beams in the 1–20 MeV energy range opens new horizons in Nuclear Photonics, fundamental nuclear structure studies, photon-photon and photon-particle collider scenarios. We discuss here the features of this new generation Thomson/Compton back-scattering sources, with particular focus on the ELI-NP Gamma Beam source characteristics, and the possible set up for a low-energy γ–γ collider.
