  Terahertz (THz) wave is an attractive source for a variety of research including imaging, spectroscopy, security, etc. We proposed a new scheme of high-power and ultrashort THz generation by using the coherent transition radiation from a cone-shaped multi-foil radiator [*] and a rectangle-shaped multi-foil radiator. To perform the proof-of-principle of the multi-foil THz radiator, we used 80~100 MeV electron bunches from laser-plasma acceleration. While a cone-shaped multi-foil radiator has a circular polarization with a conic wave, we made a rectangle-shaped multi-foil radiator that has a linear polarization in a plane-like wave, which can be used more widely for various applications. We can easily control the power of multi-foil radiator by adjusting the number of foils. We compare the THz power ratio between 1 sheet and multi sheets using cooled bolometer. We will measure the pulse duration and bandwidth of the THz wave from the multi-foil radiators in a single-shot by using electro-optic sampling and cross-correlation method.
