It is generally difficult to diagnose the energy of an electron beam propagating in a focusing channel. Here we suggest observation of the Doppler‐shifted radiation due to the electrons’ betatron motion in the channel as a sensitive, nonperturbing diagnostic. Sample spectra have been calculated for a specific type of channel used in a cyclic electron accelerator and their features are discussed.
