TeraFERMI

A THz beamline at the FERMI Free-Electron-Laser

TeraFERMI is the THz beamline of the FERMI Free-Electron-Laser (FEL) facility. TeraFERMI collects the THz radiation naturally emitted by the electron beam already spent by the FEL undulators, and guide it into a dedicated THz Laboratory. Ultrashort (100's fs) pulses in the multi THz range with MV/cm electric fields and Tesla magnetic fields then become available in the FERMI experimental hall. Because of the extremely large fields involved, the beamline can be used to shape material's properties by driving the systems out of equilibrium. Moreover, the TeraFERMI beamline also provides the perfect playground to study for the first time the coherent THz emission from a seeded 4th generation light source.

Funding

The TeraFERMI project is a joint collaboration between Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste, the INSTM consortium, and CNR-IOM. TeraFERMI is supported by the FIRB “Futuro in Ricerca” grant no. RBFR10PSK4.
