A theoretical and computational study of optical guiding in a Raman free-electron laser (of wavelength = 2 mm) is given. A set of basic dynamical equations is given, including the effects of space-charge and two-dimensional diffractions, both with and without a waveguide. The results from a computer code based on these equations are reported, showing optical guiding. An experiment is proposed in the Columbia free-electron laser to measure optical guiding.
