AB - Design features and some past experimental results are presented for a sub-THz wave source employing the Advanced Photon Source's RF thermionic electron gun. The setup includes a compact alpha-magnet, four quadrupoles, a novel radiator, a THz transport line, and THz diagnostics. The radiator is composed of a dielectric-free, planar, over-sized structure with gratings. The gratings are integrated into a combined horn antenna and ~90° permanent bending magnet. The magnetic lattice enables operation in different modes, including conversion to a flat beam for efficient interaction with the radiating structure. The experiment described demonstrated the generation of narrow bandwidth THz radiation from a compact, laser and undulator-free, table-top system. This concept could be scaled to create a THz-sub-THz source capable of operating in long-pulse, multi-bunch, and CW modes. Additionally, the system can be used to remove unwanted time-dependent energy variations in longitudinally compressed electron bunches or for various time-dependent beam diagnostics. Plans for future experiments and upgrades are also discussed.
