The first experiments on observation of short pulsed superradiant (SR) emission with excitation of a surface wave by a relativistic electron bunch moving in oversized corrugated waveguide were performed. Sub-terahertz SR pulses with the central frequency of 0.14 THz, ultrashort duration of 150 ps and an extremely high peak power of 50-70 MW were generated. The experiments were based on a theoretical consideration including the quasi-optical approach and direct particle-in-cell simulations.
