### A high-power, beam-based, coherently enhanced THz radiation source

We propose a Smith-Purcell radiation device that can potentially generate high average power THz radiation with very high conversion efficiency. The source is based on a train of short electron bunches from an rf photoemission gun at an energy of a few MeV. Particle tracking simulation and analysis show that with a beam current of 1 mA, it is feasible to generate hundreds of Watts of narrow-band THz radiation at a repetition rate of 1 MHz.

~mW, 8 min

H. B. Liu et al, Proc. IEEE 95, 1515 (2007).

Higher power is needed field application.

The matter of coherence

Radiation power from a electron bunch

Coherent radiation

Incoherent radiation

dE/dw: electron radiation energy into per spectral frequency

N: total number of electrons

Coherence factor

S(t): electron temporal distribution

Coherence factor as a function of bunch length

Short bunch is the key for high coherent factor!

Y.Li and K.-J. Kim, Appl. Phys. Lett. 92, 014101 (2008).

Degradation of coherence factors in electron bunches

Energy from zero to 8 MeV (see later)

The degradation is due to space charge force.

Effect of the space charge force

Q: total charge

sz, sr: longi and trans beam sizes

g: relativistic factor

To solve the problem

Higher beam energy, costly on $$$$

Less charge, costly on photons

How about bunch train? Reduced space charge but preserved coherence factor.

Preserve the coherence factor by bunch trains

Coherence factor for a bunch train

scoh: coherence factor for individual bunched

tb: bunch spacing, to be set as 2p/w

Nb: Number of bunches

Preserve the coherence factor by bunch trains

Same coherence factor but narrower band width

Coherent factor as a function of frequency for 1-16 bunches

Resonant wavelength

Radiation power per electron

Ng, lg: number of grating grooves and grating period.

le: evanescent wavelength

n: diffraction order

Putting things together: radiation powers at 1 MHz, for 0.5 THzgrating

THz

total radiation power as a function of the beam center-grating distance with a beam scraper height D in mm measured from the grating surface.

Summary

- We showed that with coherence enhancement, a beam based source delivering hundreds of watts of THz power is possible and may be made compact for field application tools.

Can we make a THz source like this?
