The theory of X-ray radiation from relativistic channeled electrons at the Bragg angles-parametric X-ray radiation (PXR) during channeling (PXRC)-is developed while accounting for two quantum effects: the initial population of bound states of transverse motion and the transverse "form-factor" of channeled electrons. An experiment was conducted using a 255 MeV electron beam from a linac at the SAGA Light Source. We have identified a difference in the angular distributions of PXR and PXRC and obtained a fairly good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results.
