In this paper we describe a novel self-consistent 3D simulation approach for a waveguide FEL operating in the zero-slippage regime to generate high power THz radiation. In this interaction regime, the phase and group velocity of the radiation are matched to the relativistic beam traveling in the undulator achieving long interaction lengths. Our numerical approach is based on expanding the existing 3D particle tracking code GPT (General Particle Tracer) to follow the interaction of the particles in the beam with the electromagnetic field modes of the waveguide. We present two separate studies: one for a case which was benchmarked with experimental results and another one for a test case where, using a longer undulator and larger bunch charge, a sizable fraction of the input beam energy can be extracted and converted to THz radiation. The model presented here is an important step in the development of the zero-slippage FEL scheme as a source for high average and peak power THz radiation.

  Experiments using a THz pump and an x-ray probe at an x-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) facility like LCLS-II require frequency-tunable (3 to 20 THz), narrow bandwidth ( ∼ 10\%), carrier-envelope-phase-stable THz pulses that produce high fields (>1MV/cm) at the repetition rate of the x rays and well synchronized with them. In this paper, we study a two-bunch scheme to generate THz radiation at LCLS-II: the first bunch produces THz radiation in a permanent-magnet or electromagnet wiggler immediately following the LCLS-II undulator that produces X-rays from the second bunch. The initial time delay between the two bunches is optimized to compensate for the path difference in transport. We describe the two-bunch beam dynamics, the THz wiggler and radiation, as well as the transport system bringing the THz pulses from the wiggler to the experimental hall.
