Euclid BeamLabs is developing a table top narrow band THz source based on small energy (few MeV) electron accelerator. We had performed a set of experiments at ATF (BNL) and AWA (ANL) producing hundreds of kWt peak power signals with pulse durations of hundreds of picoseconds.
Euclid Techlabs LLC is developing a novel MeV range electron source with two critical features needed for any space limited applications: an Ultra-nano Crystal Diamond (UNCD) Field Emission (FE) cathode for high quality 10mA (in pulse) current and a dielectric based accelerator (DLA).
Diamond materials grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) are a relatively new class of engineering materials exploiting the superior thermal, mechanical, chemical, optical, and electronic properties of diamond. The CVD process allows for high purity and control of the material characteristics unavailable in either natural diamonds, or high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) synthetic diamonds. These new materials are enabling applications such as megawatt microwave sources (gyrotrons), synchrotron beam line optics and windows, radiation-hard detectors, artificial retina coatings, electrochemical waste water treatment, optical windows for spectroscopic sensing of harsh environments, corrosive pump seals, heat spreaders for electronic components and diode lasers, just to name a few of the many advanced technological applications. Polycrystalline CVD diamond has been grown in plates as thick as 5 mm and 100 mm diameter.
Driving an electron beam into a helical pattern with terahertz electromagnetic pulses allows researchers to measure the beam’s complete shape with femtosecond resolution. For more
