Vacuum Electronic High Power Terahertz Sources

Recent research and development has been incredibly successful at advancing the capabilities for vacuum electronic device (VED) sources of powerful terahertz (THz) and near-THz coherent radiation,

Terahertz generation by means of optical lasers

Generation of high-power radiation in terahertz frequency range 0.3 – 10 THz is a fast developing research area attracting considerable interest over the past years due to its important applications

Using 15 fs, LINAC-generated electron bunches for naturally synchronized infrared pump x-ray probe experiments with coherent synchrotron radiation

It is proposed to use highly compressed 15 fs bunches from a linear accelerator, such as the Stanford Linear Accelerator, for the production of both ultrashort x rays and mid-infrared coherent

The SPARC linear accelerator based terahertz source

Ultra-short electron beams, produced through the velocity bunching compression technique, are used to drive the SPARC linear accelerator based source, which relies on the emission of coherent

Efficient generation of short terahertz pulses via stimulated Raman adiabatic passage.

It is shown that coherently driven molecular media potentially yield strong, controllable, short pulses of terahertz radiation in the form of coherent scattering of infrared radiation in molecular gases by using stimulated Raman adiabatic passage.

A dense plasma focus device as a pulsed neutron source for material identification

Dense plasma focus (DPF) devices are pulsed power devices capable of producing shortlived, hot and dense plasmas (~10 cm) through a fast compression of plasma sheath. A DPF device provides intense

Broadband terahertz generation through intracavity nonlinear optical rectification.

A new way to improve the signal-noise ratio of the free-space terahertz time-domain spectroscopy through nonlinear optical rectification pumped by a femtosecond laser oscillator is opened.

Coherent synchrotron radiation and radiative electron polarization

The process of radiative electron polarization through the mechanism of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) has been considered in the semi-classical approach. The CSR process is characterized by

The free electron laser at Jefferson Laboratory is the first of a new generation of light sources based on a photoinjected energy recovered linac. The present machine has a 40 MeV electron beam and

Coherent synchrotron radiation in the far-infrared from a 1 mm electron bunch

The coherent generation of synchrotron radiation by an electron storage ring is predicted for wavelengths equal to or longer than the electron bunch length. With typical bunch lengths of

Spontaneous Coherent Microwave Emission and the Sawtooth Instability in a Compact Storage Ring

Strong evidence for self-excited emission of coherent synchrotron radiation in the microwave spectral region was observed at the Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility (SURF III) electron storage

The pulse energy of the far-infrared radiation is found to be a quadratic function of bias field and a nonmonotonic function of laser intensity.

We report on frequency doubling and tripling of THz radiation in a voltage-biased GaAs/AlAs superlattice. By use of a corner cube antenna system, radiation from the Santa Barbara free-electron laser

Observation of coherent synchrotron radiation.

Coherent effects in synchrotron radiation (SR) have been observed for the first time from 180-MeV short electron bunches of 2.4 mm using the Tohoku 300-MeV Linac. The intensity of the coherent SR was

We have used Monte Carlo calculations to verify the classical electrodynamics result describing the multiparticle coherent enhancement at long wavelengths for synchrotron-radiation emission. In

The experimental setup to observe STR via cavity detuning measurements and experimental results is discussed, and the emission of more radiated energy than would be possible without this external field is discussed.

Steady-state far-infrared coherent synchrotron radiation detected at BESSY II.

At BESSY II it is demonstrated that far-infrared coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) can be generated by a controlled, steady-state process at storage rings, and the incoherent radiation remained below the background level.
