High energy electrons above about 25 MeV may produce microwave radiation in air by the Cerenkov mechanism. Electrons accelerated by a travelling wave accelerator are emitted in bunches. The radiation produced by such a beam in air should consist of the basic accelerator frequency and many harmonics. Here it is explored how the microwave harmonics may be used to determine the spatial structure of the bunches.
