We have developed crossed-undulator configuration to control the polarization of coherent THz radiation at the femto-second electron beam facility, t-ACTS [1], that has been established at Research Center for Electron Photon Science, Tohoku University. The t-ACTS linac equips a thermionic RF gun, a 3 m accelerating structure and a 50 MW klystron modulator. Ultra-short electron bunch (~80 fs) train can be supplied via velocity bunching scheme. The crossed-undulator system is consisted with two identical transverse undulators intersected by a chicane type phase shifter. Deflecting planes of two undulators are at right angles each other, and the phase shifter makes path length difference between the electrons and the radiation. Target radiation frequency is around 2 THz employing a beam energy of 22 MeV. Since electron bunch trails behind the radiation by the slippage-effect and the nonrelativistic-effect that the electron speed is a bit slower than the speed of light, the radiation from 1st undulator has to be much delayed rather than the electrons. The paper will report the characteristics of polarized radiation and designing work of the phase shifter.
