AB  - High-resolution bunch length measurement is a key component in the optimisation of beam quality in FELs, storage rings, and plasma-based accelerators. Simulations have shown that the profile of a coherent transition radiation (CTR) image produced by a charged particle beam is sensitive to bunch length and can thus be used as a diagnostic. This contribution presents the development progress of a novel bunch length monitor based on imaging the spatial distribution of CTR. Due to the bunch lengths studied, 10fs-100fs FWHM, the radiation of interest was in the THz range. This led to the development of a THz imaging system, which can be applied to both high and low energy electron beams. The associated benefits of this imaging distribution methodology over the typical angular distribution measurement are discussed. Building upon preliminary multi-shot proof of concept results last year, a new series of experiments have been conducted in the short pulse facility (SPF) at MAX IV. Single-shot measurements have been used to measure the exact point of maximum compression. Analysis from the proof of concept results last year, and initial results from the new measurements this year are discussed.
