Abstract

A compact isochronous accumulator ring has been studied as a source of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) at a wavelength region from THz to GHz. Since thermionic RF gun is substantially stable in general, we anticipate a bunch train of very short electron pulses can be provided satisfactorily by means of velocity bunching [1]. Careful numerical simulations show feasibility of the sub-100 fs bunch. The THz-CSR of high average power will be achieved if the short bunches can be circulated in the accumulator ring without bunch lengthening. This paper will describe the optimization of thermionic injector to produce femtosecond bunches in addition to study of lattice designing of complete isochronous optics for the accumulator ring.
