Parametric x-ray radiation is observed in a mosaic pyrolytic-graphite crystal irradiated with a 5.7-MeV electron beam. The first-order (002) reflection of parametric x-ray radiation is detected in Bragg geometry. In the measured spectra, there is a peak at about 8 keV. The detector used is arranged at an angle of ΘD = 2ΘB = 27° with respect to the electron beam, where ΘB is the Bragg angle. The target thickness is 0.3 mm. The spectra of parametric x-ray radiation are measured at various angles of target orientation with respect to the axis of the incident-electron beam.
