Abstract

TeraFERMI is the THz beamline at the FERMI seeded Free-Electron-Laser facility in Trieste. The beamline exploits the short electron bunch structure of the FERMI accelerator to generate THz sub-picosecond pulses up to 100 microJoule through Coherent Transition Radiation. Thanks to the high peak power achievable, TeraFERMI can be used to address non-linear THz spectroscopy and to achieve coherent control on material’s properties. The TeraFERMI beamline will thus extend the free-electron-laser's capabilites in terms of peak power, and ultrafast temporal structure, into the THz spectral range. We illustrate here the beamline design and report on the TeraFERMI beamline status and commissioning results.
