  Nowadays, the method of longitudinal beam profile diagnostic based on transition radiation (TR) spectrum is well studied [1] and is constantly being applied, while using of coherent Cherenkov radiation (CCR) is a modern task that opens up new possibilities in this area [2]. In current work we conducted experiments on CCR generation, observation and it further spectral analysis at 0.1-30 THz spectral range. All experimental work was at CLARA (beam area 1) facility (~50 MeV beam energy at up to 10 Hz pulse repetition rate with sub-ps bunch length). Inside of vacuum chamber we developed movable platform where both VCR and TR target were placed, which is allows us to observe both effects during one accelerator run. For spectral analysis we used Martin-Pupplet interferometer as it provides higher signal to noise ratio and allows us to perform instabilities normalisation. As a result we will demonstrate a selection of interferograms and spectrums (as well as reconstructed longitudinal beam profiles) for different machine setups and distances between charged particle beam and Cherenkov target. By using mathematical analysis it has been shown that CLARA bunch length was about 1.2 ps.

The resolution of a streak camera system strongly depends on the slew rate of the deflecting element, which is the product of the amplitude and frequency of the device. An attractive approach towards femtosecond and sub-femtosecond range consists in using terahertz-driven devices, which offer a good combination of high frequency and high gradient-gradients of GV/m have been demonstrated in split ring resonator using pulse created by rectifying ultrashort laser pulses. We present results obtained from a beam experiment at the VELA facility at Daresbury laboratory. We tested a planar resonator derived from the geometry of a split ring resonator with an aperture for the beam of 20 um.
