Abstract

The interaction between an intense laser and a cotraveling relativistic dense electron beam could result in the downshifting of the laser frequency. It is theoretically analyzed that this process can generate a coherent terahertz radiation. The radiation energy could reach the order of 1 mJ per shot in the duration of 100 ps, or a temporal radiation power of 10 MW, with a set of practically relevant parameters.
