Paper Abstract

The development of terahertz radiation (T-rays) is spurring new applications in spectroscopy and imaging. To maximize the use of T-rays in more applications, a high average terahertz power is needed. Rather than using fast diodes or laser sources, this paper will show that a synchrotron can generate high average power T-rays. This is achieved by creating an electron bunch in the synchrotron ring with high intensity in the terahertz frequency region via Thomson scattering.
