  A power enhancement optical cavity is a compelling means of realizing a pulsed laser with a high peak power and high repetition frequency, which is not feasible using a simple amplifier scheme. However, a precise feedback system is necessary for maintaining the narrow resonance condition of the optical cavity; this has become a major technical issue in developing such cavities. We have developed a new approach that does not require any active feedback system, by placing the cavity in the outer loop of a laser amplifier. We report on the first demonstra-tion of a mode-locked pulse oscillation using the new system.

  A test-Accelerator as Coherent Terahertz Source (t-ACTS) has been under development at the Research Center for Electron Photon Science (ELPH), Tohoku University, in which an intense coherent terahertz radiation is generated from the femtosecond electron pulses. Velocity bunching scheme in a traveling accelerating structure is employed to generate femtosecond electron pulses, and the generation of femtosecond electron pulses was confirmed by spectrum analysis of coherent transition radiation using Michelson interferometer. Coherent transition radiation and coherent undulator radiation in the terahertz (THz) region from the short electron pulses has been demonstrated, and their characteristics such as frequency spectrum, spatial distribution and polarization were measured and compared with theoretical calculations. We have succeeded to generate the coherent transition radiation up to approximately 5 THz and the coherent undulator radiation with narrow bandwidth from 2.6 to 3.4 THz. At present, development of a variable polarized THz light source using a crossed-undulator system is being carried out. In addition, we are developing a nondestructive beam monitor using Cherenkov radiation emitted from the electron pulses. The status of t-ACTS will be presented in this conference.

The terahertz wave is located in the intermediate frequency band between radio waves and light waves, and researches on the light sources such as terahertz quantum cascade laser and femtosecond laser based THz sources are being conducted*. As a new terahertz light source, we are studying coherent Cherenkov radiation by using the tilt control of electron beam and irradiating the target medium. Since the radiation intensity of Cherenkov radiation depends on the target medium, comparison of three kinds of medium with different refractive index and density, and optimization of the target shape were performed. In addition, we are going to try quasi monochromatization of radiation by using multi slit to control the form factor of the electron beam. In this presentation, we will report the experimental results of target optimization and quasi monochromatization and the future prospects.

  We propose to generate two narrow band terahertz pulses radiated from two temporally modulated relativistic electron beams, which are generated in a photo-injector. The temporal profile of the drive laser is modulated by means of the paired chirped pulses beating technique, leading to the generation of two pre-bunched electron beams. Coherent transient radiation (CTR) is considered as the mechanism for terahertz radiation generation. The frequencies of the two terahertz pulses can be independently tuned by adjusting the paired beating frequencies, and the interval between the two terahertz pulses can be adjusted by the optical delay line.

  Compton backscattering at energy recovery linacs (ERLs) promises high flux, high energy x-ray sources in the future, made possible by high quality, high repetition rate electron beams produced by ERLs. CBETA, the Cornell-BNL ERL Test Accelerator currently being built and commissioned at Cornell, is an SRF multi-turn ERL using Non-Scaling Fixed Field Alternating-gradient (NS-FFA) arcs. CBETA has high quality design parameters with an anticipated top energy of 150 MeV on the fourth pass. The expected parameters of a Compton source at CBETA include a top x-ray energy of over 400 keV with a flux on the order of 1012 ph/s. In this paper, we present anticipated parameters and potential applications in science and engineering for this source.

Emittance exchange beamline provides a unique correlation between the upstream transverse momentum and downstream longitudinal timing. Similar to the bunch train generation concept using energy modulation and chicane, the emittance exchange beamline can convert the transverse momentum modulation to the temporal modulation at the end of the beamline. The beam can obtain this transverse modulation from alternating magnet array (e.g. 90 degree rotated undulator). While most of other methods provide only one knob to control both micro-bunch length and bunch-to-bunch spacing or hard to control one of the knobs, this method provides separated knobs for the micro-bunch length and spacing and they are easy to control. These knobs enable to separately control the fundamental frequency of the radiation and its bandwidth. We plan to demonstrate this method at Argonne Wakefield Accelerator facility (AWA). This poster present progress on this new method and its demonstration at AWA.

We investigate the properties of Cherenkov, quasi-Cherenkov (parametric) and diffraction radiation generated in the periodic conducting wire medium by transversely modulated electron beams. Such beams were recently obtained at Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) facility using microlens array (MLA) laser shaping technique. We consider in details the case of one dimensional periodic tungsten wire structure and transverse electron beamlets separation of mm scale. We look at possible enhancements of the radiation field due to transverse periodicity of the electron beam.
