We present experimental results on channeling and parametric X-ray radiation obtained using a 255-MeV electron beam from an injector linac at the SAGA Light Source. Using a screen monitor, we observed both channeling phenomena and doughnut scattering by measuring the profile of an electron beam transmitted through a 20-μm-thick Si crystal. We also measured the angular distribution of parametric X-ray radiation using an imaging plate as a two-dimensional X-ray detector. The obtained results are in good agreement with theory. The final goal of these studies is the first observation of diffracted channeling radiation, and our strategy for achieving this is discussed.
