Experimental work is planned to study the performance of a beam-driven cylindrical dielectric wakefield accelerating structure as a source of THz coherent Cerenkov radiation. For an appropriate choice of dielectric tube geometry and driving electron bunch parameters, the device operates in a single-mode regime, producing narrow-band radiation in the THz range. This source can potentially produce high power levels relative to currently available sources, with ~50 μJ radiated energy per pulse achievable using the electron beam currently in operation at the Neptune Advanced Accelerator Research Laboratory at UCLA (~13 MeV beam energy, ~200 μm RMS bunch length, ~500 pC bunch charge). Preparations underway for installation of the experiment are discussed.
