Abstract

X-ray Cherenkov radiation is studied theoretically for grazing incidence of emitting electrons on thin foils of different materials. The growth of the angular density of emitted photons due to the modification of Cherenkov cone structure is shown. The characteristics of a possible Cherenkov X-ray source are discussed.
