SLAC has two electron accelerators, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) and the Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests (FACET), providing high-charge, high-peak-current, femtosecond electron bunches. These characteristics are ideal for generating intense broadband terahertz (THz) pulses via coherent transition radiation. For LCLS and FACET(More)
We demonstrate the use of intense, quasi-half-cycle THz pulses, with an associated electric field component comparable to intramolecular electric fields, to direct the reaction coordinate of a chemical reaction by stimulating the nuclear motions of the reactants. Using a strong electric field from a THz pulse generated via coherent transition radiation from(More)

Introduction In order to produce negative hydrogen or deuterium ion beams, the output of a positive ion source must undergo charge exchange with neutral atoms such as cesium. The maximum efficiency of this process is 217 for 800-eV H + interacting with cesium.1 It has been suggested that by optically exciting the cesium, the efficiency can be improved. 2(More)
