  It is a quite common belief that measurements of Optical Transition Radiation (OTR) produced by sub-MeV electron beams are impossible or at least require special highly sensitive instrumentation. The TRIUMF electron linac, presently undergoing commissioning, is capable of delivering up to 10mA of CW electron beams. Simulations showed that such a powerful beam generates substantial amount of light even at electron energies available at the output of the thermionic gun. The experiment was then setup to test the predictions. This paper reports OTR measurements for the range of electron energies 100-300 keV performed with an ordinary CCD camera.
