Abstract

A series of experiments on the parametric X-rays radiation (PXR) generation and radiation soft component diffraction of relativistic electrons in pyrolytic graphite (PG) crystals have been carried out at the Tomsk synchrotron. It is shown that the experimental results with PG crystals are explained by the kinematic PXR theory if we take into account a contribution of the real photons diffraction (transition radiation, bremsstrahlung and PXR photons as well). The measurements of the emission spectrum of channeled electrons in the photon energy range much smaller than the characteristic energy of channeling radiation have been performed with a crystal-diffraction spectrometer. For electrons incident along the 〈 110 〉 axis of a silicon crystal, the radiation intensity in the energy range 30 ≤ ω ≤ 360 keV exceeds the bremsstrahlung one almost by an order of magnitude. Different possibilities to create an effective source of the monochromatic X-ray beam based on the real and virtual photons diffraction in the PG crystals have been considered.
