Abstract : Previous work has shown that microwave Cerenkov radiation from periodic electron bunches occurs at harmonics of the bunch frequency and that the radiation is not necessarily confined to a narrow region centered about the expected Cerenkov angle. This report continues the investigation of the spreading of the radiation and presents the results of numerical calculations of the radiated power per unit solid angle and the total radiated power for physically realizable conditions.
