Coherent Far-Infrared Radiation From Electron Bunches


Intense, coherent, polarized far-infrared (FIR) radiation can be derived from relativistic f-sec electron bunches [1,2,3]. At the SUNSHINE (Stanford UNiversity SHort INtense Electron Source)facility, such radiation is generated in the form of transition (TR), stimulated transition (STR) and undulator radiation (UR) at wave length from 47 mu m up to mm waves. The radiance of this radiation greatly exceeds that available from conventional black body radiation or synchrotron radiation thus rpoviding an effective new tool for FIR research. The techniques for producing such radiation as well as the newly discovered process of stimulated transition radiation will be described and discussed.
