Abstract

A method for the generation of quasi-unipolar pulses based on coherent synchrotron radiation from a quasi-planar electron bunch moving along a curved trajectory is proposed and theoretically studied. It is demonstrated that the experimental realization of this method at an existing installation (Terahertz to Optical Pulse Source) can result in generation of picosecond pulses with a peak power of up to 200 MW.
