Abstract

Optical transition radiation (OTR) in amorphous quartz is investigated experimentally for electrons with energies 7.5 MeV. It is shown that the Cherenkov radiation and OTR can be separated at specific conditions. The linear polarization of OTR is investigated and it is shown that the polarization is radial. The results of measurements for the spectral distribution of OTR have shown the maximum intensity of radiation at the wavelengths in the range 320-500 nm.
