Model of terahertz radiation sources was developed in this work. This model based on the nanopeapod: carbon nanotube (10, 10) with incapsulated chains of the fullerene C60. Simulation of the nanoemitter action was carried out by means of the molecular-mechanical model. The length of the considered nanotube is equals to 10.3 nm, and radius of this tube is equals to 1.35 nm. It was found that to generate the radiation in terahertz range it is necessary to apply the external field with strength of 1⋅106 V / cm to our system. The moving fullerene C60 has a charge of +3е, and the nanotube has a charge of -3е. It was established that the field emission process from the surface of the nanotube is not observed in this case. The submitter model of nanoemitter works with a frequency 0.36 THz at a field strength of 1⋅106 V / cm.
