Abstract

A test accelerator for the coherent terahertz source (t-ACTS) has been under development at Research Center for Electron Photon Science, Tohoku University. Intense coherent terahertz radiation will be generated by the very short electron bunch less than 100 fs using a thermionic RF gun. The RF gun has been already manufactured and the measurement of RF characteristics is now in progress. We present the results of low-power measurement and also discuss the effect of the cathode misalignment on the beam parameters such as transverse emittance and longitudinal phase space distribution.
