The energy spectrum of low energy positrons was discussed. The shape of spectra was generated by conversion of planar channeling radiation from relativistic electrons into electron-positron pairs in a thin amorphous convertor. The results showed that the shape of the spectrum depends on initial electron energy, on the alignment of crystals with respect to the electron beam and on the crystal temperature.
