Abstract: A simple nonperturbing technique for the electron relativistic bunch diagnostics has been proposed which does not require the use of an interferometer for spectral measurements. The interferometer functions are performed by a slit target in which diffraction radiation is generated. The measurements of electron bunch length are carried out by shifting one half of the target relative to the other. A good agreement with the results of measuring the coherent radiation spectrum of relativistic electron bunches has been obtained.
