In the article the cooperative N2-effects are considered, that is the radiation whose power is ım N2, where N is the number of emitters which in this case is equal to the number of electrons in a bunch. The suggested effects are the result of combining two effects: the Gunn-effect in GaAs and undulator-like radiation, or "pumping wave" acting on the electrons and which is the result of undulator field, while the second is the backward effect of radiation which is produced by electrons moving within such microundulator. It is very probable that the effects can be used for the developing of a new semiconductor-based room temperature source of the THz-radiation.
