Abstract

A project t-ACTS (test accelerator as the coherent terahertz source) is in progress at Tohoku University, in which an isochronous accumulator ring and a bunched free electron laser will provide the intense terahertz radiation by employing sub-picoseconds electron pulses. A thermionic RF gun with two independently-tunable cells (ITC), an alpha magnet and a 3 m accelerating structure are employed in the t-ACTS injector, where the velocity bunching scheme will be adopted for the short pulse generation. We already accomplished high power RF processing for the gun, and then started the beam commissioning. We report first results of beam commissioning of the ITC-RF gun and also present the current status of t-ACTS project.
