Abstract

Polarization characteristics of diffraction radiation generated by charged particles moving close to a tilted conducting half-plane or passing through a slit are studied. Unlike the linearly polarized transition radiation, the diffraction radiation is shown to possess elliptical polarization. T1he dependence of three Stokes parameters of diffraction radiation on the distance to the slit center is analyzed for the case of a particle passing through a slit. A method for determining the transverse beam size while measuring the diffraction radiation polarization is proposed.
