  We are upgrading the THz-FEL at Osaka University for its applications to high intensity THz sciences, which originally generated the high intensity FEL with the macropulse energy up to 3.7 mJ and the micropulse energy up to ~10 uJ at a wavelength around 70 um. To increase the micropulse energy, charge in electron bunches is increased four time higher and the bunch intervals are expanded four times longer to maintain the average current in the linac unchanged. In the new operation mode, the macropulse energy increases up to 26 mJ and the micropulse energy to ~0.2 mJ, which is 20 times higher than the energy previously obtained in the conventional mode. We have developed a solid-state switch for the klystron modulator to highly stabilize the klystron voltage, so that the output power of the FEL becomes stable. We are conducting basic studies on FEL for further improvement of its performance, including measurement of power evolution from start-up to saturation, time structures of FEL micropulses measured with a Michelson interferometer, and time structures of macropulses measured with a Schottky diode detector. We will report results of these studies on the THz-FEL at Osaka University.
