  Self amplified spontaneous emission and enhanced super-radiance are discussed and compared as possible configurations in the construction of a single-pass, photo-cathode RF-LINAC FEL source for THz radiation, being developed in Ariel University Center of Samaria. Numerical simulations carried out using 3D, space-frequency approach demonstrate the charge squared dependence of the radiation power in both cases, the characteristic typical to super-radiant emission. The comparison reveals a high efficiency of an enhanced super-radiance FEL, which however can only be achieved with ultra-short (the radiation wavelength long or shorter) drive electron beam bunches at a proper energy chirping.
