Paper Abstract

A tunable terahertz source (TTS) based on a Smith-Purcell emitter will be described. The tunable THz source is analogous to low frequency electron beam devices such as magnetrons, backward wave oscillators and traveling wave tubes. The device offers continuous tunability, compactness, and robust operation. Examples of THz spectroscopy will be given.
