Description: We describe a method of generating very high-frequency coherent radiation using an electron beam source with a maximum beam energy of 1.2 MeV. We show that, though the high frequency cutoff for the radiation generated when the beam impacts a target at normal incidence is reduced by transverse beam size effects, it is nevertheless possible to generate much higher frequencies by a judicious choice of the angles of incidence and observation. 5 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.
