We present a THz-based electron accelerator and electron streak camera using a novel multilayer waveguide structure to utilize strong-field single-cycle THz pulses. It allows for very efficient electron acceleration and streaking using transversely-coupled short THz-waveguides with dielectric delay sections which realize phase-matching between electrons and a single-cycle THz pulse. Proof-of-concept experiments are described demonstrating 13 keV energy gain and femtosecond time resolution for 57 keV electron bunches from a DC-gun, which is in good agreement with simulation.
