In recent years, significant progress was achieved in generation of high-power ultrashort microwave pulses based on superradiance (SR) of electron bunches extended in the wavelength scale. In this process, coherent emission from the entire volume of the bunch occurs due to the development of microbunching and slippage of the wave with respect to electrons. An obvious method for generation of high-power sub-THz radiation is the implementation of oversized periodical slow-wave structures where evanescent surface waves can be excited. We report of the experiments on Cherenkov generation of 150 ps SR pulses with a central frequency of 0.14 THz, and an extremely high peak power up to 70 MW. In order to generate spatially coherent radiation in shorter wavelength ranges (including THz band) in strongly oversized waveguiding systems, we propose a slow wave structure with double periodic corrugation (2D SWS). Using the quasi-optical theory and PIC simulations, we demonstrate the applicability of such 2D SWS and its advantages against traditional 1D SWS. Proof of principle experiments on observation G-band Cherenkov SR in 2D SWS are currently in progress.
