Abstract : The equation defining the energy radiated per unit solid angle due to Cerenkov radiation is analyzed in detail, including the effects of all equation variables for a hypothetical electron accelerator experiment. Specifically, various finite frequency intervals are used in an effort to determine the optimum means of determining the details of a charge bunch in a high energy electron accelerator. In particular, it is shown how narrowband measurements as a function of angle may yield information on both the beam path length and the bunch charge parameters. As an aid to the analysis, an interactive Fortran program is presented that allows for any specific experimental parameters, with options for various output types as desired. Keywords: Cerenkov radiation; Electron accelerator, Theses.
