The possibility to stimulate channeling radiation by external excitation of ultrasonic waves in a piezoelectric single crystal is predicted by theory. The experimental verification of this effect requires the knowledge of the undisturbed spectrum of channeling radiation. For the first time, planar channeling radiation from 17, 25 and 32 MeV electrons channeled in a quartz single crystal has been measured. The analysis performed bases on the application of the theory of channeling radiation. Real planar continuum potentials of a quartz single crystal, eigenvalues of channeling states and transition energies have been calculated and radiation intensities were evaluated. The corresponding calculations proved to be necessary for the unambiguous identi- fication of the spectra of channeling radiation registered from this hexagonal crystal.
