  European XFEL (XFEL. EU) that will commissioning in 2016 shows great features on its extremely high number of light bullets (27000 p/s) and extremely high average brilliance. The FEL pulses in XFEL. EU are produced in a 10 Hz bunch trains that contains 2700 sub-pulses within the 600 μs time intervals, corresponding to a 220 ns sub-pulse separation and 4.5 MHz repetition rate. Characterizing the temporal properties of the high repetition rate FEL pulses that implicitly different from shot to shot is important for “pump and probe” experiments and data interpretation. Here we report the concept and recent progress about temporal diagnostic for XFEL. EU. THz streaking technique and spectral encoding will be implemented considering the high repetition rate and high brilliance of XFEL. EU. Laser based THz generation, optimization and numerical simulation for streaking FEL electrons with different photon energies will be presented. High repetition rate diagnostic requirements and solutions will also be discussed.
