Results are presented from experimental studies of the spectral and angular distributions of γ-radiation from relativistic electrons passing through silicon and diamond single crystals close to the crystalline axis. An essential difference in the shapes of the soft and hard photon angular distributions for disoriented crystals is exhibited. This effect is related to the different types of electron motion in oriented crystals.
