Abstract

A broad-tunable free electron terahertz radiation source is proposed. In this source, a train of electron bunches with tunable bunching frequency is produced by a photocathode based DC-gun under excitation of a train of tunable laser pulses. These electron bunches are then applied to excite an over-mode waveguide, in which diverse guided modes are coupled into radiation with frequency determined by the bunching frequency. By this means, the tunable radiation with frequency extending from 0.1 THz to 1.2 THz can be obtained from one single structure model. In addition, compared with other sources, the proposed source is compact and easily achievable.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Schematic cut-away section of the proposed radiation source. P-C denotes the photocathode, and Tb is the time period of the bunches train. The inset shows the zoomed figure of the PLW with its structure parameters. L is the spatial period, d and h are respectively the width and depth of the groove, W is the waveguide width in the y-direction, and s denotes the distance between the groove and the middle plane of the waveguide in the x-direction.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a) Evolution of the transversal profile of the train of bunches. The inset shows the charge distribution in the x-t plane, which is detected by a screen 25 cm from the photocathode. (b) Evolution of the total length of the train of bunches. The inset shows the beam current in the bunches.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) Dispersion curves of the guided modes in the PLW. (b) Radiation field spectra from different bunching frequencies.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Simulation power density distributions in and around the PLW (in the x–z cutplane) for different frequencies. The negative value of the power indicates the backward radiation.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 (a) Radiation spectra from different bunching frequencies. Here the bunching frequencies deviate from the perfect matching points. For each guided mode, four deviation values, respectively with −10 GHz, −5 GHz, +5 GHz, +10 GHz, are shown. (b) Simulation evaluated radiation power and power capacity of the model over the 0.1–1.2 THz band. Here the electron bunches and structure parameters are the same as that in Fig. 3.
