In an infrared free-electron laser (FEL) facility using an S-band linac, a short-bunched electron beam is required to obtain a high FEL gain. Generally, the bunch length of the electron beam is compressed to 1 ps or less before interaction with the photons accumulated in the FEL resonator. This suggests that the electron beam dedicated to the FEL oscillation is suitable for generation of high-peak-power coherent radiation in terahertz (THz) wave region. Using the compressed electron beams, the coherent THz-wave sources have been developed at Laboratory for Electron Beam Research and Application (LEBRA) in Nihon University and Kyoto University Free Electron Laser (KU-FEL). The observed powers have been higher than 100 micro-joule per macropulse*. In this presentation, the properties of the high-power coherent THz waves generated at the bending magnets will be reported.
