Title: Method for the production of wideband THz radiation

Abstract

A method for the production of extremely wide bandwidth THz radiation comprising: delivering an electron beam from a source to an undulator that does not deflect the angle or transversely move the electron beam; and optimizing the undulator to yield peak emission in the middle of the THz band (1 THz). These objectives are accomplished by magnetically bending the orbit of the incoming electron beam in the undulator according to the function x(z)=x.sub.o exp(-z.sup.2/2.sigma..sup.2) and controlling the transverse magnetic field to be B(z)=B.sub.0(1-z.sup.2/.sigma..sup.2)exp(-z.sup.2/2.sigma..sup.2).
