Especially the dynamics of the excited matter can be probed with the help of X-ray pulses at a free electron laser facility, e.g. SwissFEL, to deepen our understanding of a wide range of phenomena. Due to its high research potential, various means of THz generation have been proposed and demonstrated. We investigate preliminarily here its generation based on a relativistic electron bunch and a photonic band gap crystal (PBG) made of dielectric rods. The PBG provides additional degrees of freedom for the THz pulse tuning. Additionally, the unwanted radiation parts can be damped by the structure in order to minimize the deleterious beam dynamics effects. The crystal also promises the integration of generation, filtering and coupling for transport into a single piece.
