The processes of the generation of relativistic singlet positronium atoms by mean-energy photons and electrons in amorphous and crystalline targets have been considered. The detailed numerical calculations show that a substantial increase in the positronium yield is possible at certain energies and emission angles due to the coherence effect of the B type. The peculiarities of possible experiments on the generation of relativistic singlet positronium beams by mean-energy bremsstrahlung photon and electron beams have been discussed.
