Abstract The first all-SRF accelerator driven THz source has been operated as a user facility since 2018 at ELBE radiation center. The CW electron beam is extracted from SRF gun II, accelerated to relativistic energies and compressed to sub-ps length in the ELBE SRF linac with a chicane. THz pulses are produced by pass-ing the short electron bunches through a diffraction radiator (CDR) and an undulator. The coherent THz power increases quadratically with bunch charge. The pulse energy up to 10 µJ at 0.3 THz with 100 kHz has been generated.
Funding The work was partly supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) grant 05K12CR1 and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) project (XI 106/2-1).
