A new source of radiation has been postulated that occurs when a charged particle, moving with a velocity greater than the velocity of light in a medium, is caused to oscillate about its transverse beam line by means of a static, periodical magnetic or electric filed or by means of an incident transverse wave. Experiments were conducted to measure this new source of electromagnetic shock radiation, and compare it to Cerenkov radiation, a known source of electromagnetic shock radiation. The preliminary results agree with predictions of Schneider and Spitzer, but the present accuracy is not sufficient to rule out alternative theories.

Production of x-rays by the interaction of charged particle beams with periodic structures and crystalline materials Rule, D.W.; Fiorito, R.B.; Piestrup, M.A.; Gary, C.K.; Maruyama, X.K. (SPIE, 1991);We describe our recent experimental study of the production of x-rays by an electron beam interacting with a crystal lattice, i.e. parametric x-ray (PX) generation. In this radiation process the virtual photon field ...
