  A linac-based Free Electron Laser is planned to be built in Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST). As an important part of the whole project, the focusing magnetic field is carefully designed. Space-charge force is calculated at first to give a rough evaluation about the focusing field. Start-to-end simulation shows that the magnetic field has only great effect on spot size and phase space. With the final designed field, 10-ps-length pulse containing 200pC electrons can be got and the corresponding RMS emittance and RMS radius are 7 πmm•mrad and 0.25 mm, respectively. Finally, a new idea (double-peak scheme) is discussed and excitation current is proposed as the evaluation index.

  The single pass, linac-based compact terahertz source at HUST is now in the physical design stage. To match Twiss parameters and dispersion function of the electron beam at the undulator entrance and get smaller beta function in the whole line, several lattices based on the double bending achromat(DBA) structure were discussed and the optimized design is given with beam dynamics results–calculated by MAD and Trace 3D.

  Abstract THz wave have many special performances, such as it can penetrate deep into many organic materials without the damage associated with ionizing radiation such as X-ray, it can be used to distinguish between materials with varying water content, because THz radiation is absorbed by water. In part researchers lacked reliable sources of THz, so develop new THz sources is important now. So far there were many kind of THz Source, one of them is THz source based a FEL that can produce high power (~kW). This paper will describe the design of a LINAC of 14MeV which is used for FEL to produce THz radiation. The LINAC is mainly composed of a novel EC-ITC RF gun, compensation coil, constant gradient accelerating structure, beam diagnostic system and so on. Main design parameters are as following: Energy 7~15MeV Beam current (macro pulse) 571mA (micro pulse) 30~40° Bunch length 5~7ps Charge per bunch 200~300pC Normalized emittance ≤10mm.mrad Energy spread(rms) ≤0.5%

  With the aim to obtain short-pulse bunches with high peak current for a terahertz radiation source, an RF gun with independently tunable cells (ITC) was employed. As the electron source of the ITC RF gun, a grid-control DC gun plays a key role, the performance of which determines the beam quality in the injector and transport line. In order to make the beam well compressed in the ITC RF gun, the energy of the electrons acquired from the grid-control DC gun should be 15 KeV at most. A proper structure of the grid-gun is shown to overcome the strong space charge force on the cathode, which is able to generate 1us beam with 4.5A current successfully. Simulations considering the grid net are also introduced.
