The THz source produced at the SPARC LAB test facility is able to deliver radiation pulses with time duration of few hundreds of femtoseconds and energy per pulse larger than 10 micro-Joule, corresponding to electric and magnetic fields of the order of 1MV/cm and 0.5T, respectively. The linac-driven THz radiation is produced as coherent radiation emitted by ultra-short high-brightness electron bunches. Depending on the electron bunch shaping, the THz radiation is characterized by a tunable spectral bandwidth suitable for electron beam longitudinal diagnostics, characterization of novel materials, pump-probe experiments.
