In this paper, we present an experimental observation of coherent Cherenkov radiation in the millimeter wavelength range. Coherent Cherenkov radiation is generated by a 6.1-MeV bunched electron beam passing by dielectric targets (PTFE and paraffin). The characteristics of Cherenkov and diffraction radiation measured under the same conditions are compared. The experiment is carried out with the electron beam of the microtron at Tomsk Polytechnic University.
