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.
