Diffraction radiation (DR) from an ultrarelativistic charged particle in the high plasma frequency limit was analyzed. The expression for the current density induced in the slab was derived and the general expression for the distribution of the emitted energy over angles and frequencies was given. A special case when the charge trajectory is crossed with the plane of the slab under right angle was considered. Both backward DR and forward DR were explored and it was found that the maximum of backward DR augment with increasing the oblique incidence angle.
