Abstract:

Cerenkov radiation is calculated for electron beams which exceed the velocity of radiation in a non dispersive dielectric medium. The electron beam is assumed to be bunched as emitted from a travelling wave accelerator, and the emission region is assumed to be finite. Predictions include emission at harmonics of the bunch rate coherence of radiation at low frequencies smearing of the emission angle for finite emission regions and explicit evaluation of power spectrum in terms of bunch dimensions. The results apply to microwave emission from fast electrons in air or other dielectrics.
