  Temporal synchronization between short relativistic electron bunches and laser pulses at the ps and sub-ps level is required for accelerator applications like inverse Compton light sources. Photoconductive antennas with THz and sub-THz bandwidth which are gated by fs lasers provide this level of timing resolution. This paper describes the operating principals of the diagnostic along with bench-top experimental results with recently developed plasmonics-enhanced large-area devices. A vacuum chamber with robust electronic noise reduction has been designed for upcoming beam-based experiments.
