Special Issue "Superradiances from Ultra Short Electron Bunch Beam"
A special issue of Particles (ISSN 2571-712X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Terahertz (THz) radiation, which lies in the frequency gap between infrared and microwaves, and typically refers to frequencies from 100 GHz to 10 THz, is finding use in an increasingly wide variety of applications: Information and communications technology; non-destructive evaluation; biology and medical sciences; and energy chemistry and material science. In the field of material science, THz radiation can be used for linear and nonlinear control of the physical properties, and measurement of the ultra-fast dynamic process of materials. There is great demand for THz sources that feature high power, ultra-short pulse, high-precision synchronization performance, and a broadly-tunable range of frequencies. An accelerator-based THz radiation source is one option to fulfil the feature listed above, especially in terms of high peak power, and easy and broad tunability. Particularly, free-electron laser and coherent synchrotron/transition radiations from ultra-short bunch electron beams are promising THz sources. However, further efforts are needed to bring such THz sources into the laboratory. Research and development has been carried out around the world, in particular in the East-Asia region. This Special Issue is a collaboration between Particles and the "2nd International Workshop on CSR and Free Electron Lasers from Ultra-Short Bunch Electron Beams". It is also an attempt to summarize the developments in relevant research areas, and is open to researchers (not only workshop attendees). Original contributions of experimental work, computational work, or combinations of the two, or review papers, are highly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Particles is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
