The radiation spectra from 900 and 400 MeV electrons in thin Ta, Cu, and Sn foils are measured at an angle of 19° with respect to the direction of motion of the beam. The radiation yield and its dependence on the electron energy agree satisfactorily with the theory of polarization bremsstrahlung. This result represents the first direct observation of polarization bremsstrahlung from ultrarelativistic electrons in homogeneous condensed matter.
