Terahertz (THz) radiation has broad applications in biological sciences, materials imaging and radar communications and so on. High-power, frequency-adjustable THz radiation sources are desired. An electron beam, generated in a photoinjector and bunched at terahertz (THz) frequency, will excite a coherent THz radiation when entering an undulator. The radiation power mainly depends on the particle number and the bunching factor of the electron beam, which is limited by the space charge effect among the microbunches and the total rf phase width the macrobunch occupied. Previously we have designed a pre-bunched THz free electron laser (FEL) with the radiation frequency covering 0.5-5 THz. While the radiation intensity for the lower frequency (below 1~THz) is not very high because of the large energy spread and the low bunching factor. We will report a THz FEL by a velocity bunching scheme, which could realize more highly bunched beam especially in the low THz frequency region. The physical design of the electron source is described in detail.
