The operation of the DC-to-AC radiation converter (DARC) in the sub-THz region is confirmed. A relativistic ionization front which is created by a loosely focused of Ti:sapphire laser pulse propagating through a capacitor array of period d = 0.2 cm with a gas pressure between 1 and 200 Pa. The maximum frequency of the generated emission is determined to be in the range of 0.1 to 0.3 THz by using several diodes.
