High-power electron beam could support a wide array of applications including high-flux accelerator-based radiation sources. We have recently investigated the production of high-power electron beam by coupling a field-emission source to a superconducting radiofrequency cavity. In this contribution we describe the concept and demonstrate its performances via numerical simulations. We also discuss the application of such an electron source to drive a THz radiation source.
