Abstract-Electron-Terahertz Interaction in Dielectric-Lined Waveguide Structures for Electron Manipulation
A. L. Healy, G. Burt, S. P. Jamison
Terahertz-driven dielectric-lined waveguides (DLWs) have uses in electron manipulation; in particular deflection, acceleration, and focussing. A rectangular DLW has been optimised for deflection of 100 keV electrons using a THz pulse with a centre frequency 0.5 THz. Electron-THz interaction and the effect of electron bunch injection timing on maximising deflection is presented. DLWs and corrugated waveguides are compared to discuss relative advantages and disadvantages.
