We discuss a recent experiment at the PITZ facility in DESY, Zeuthen. Here an electron bunch was energy modulated from its self wake in a dielectric-lined waveguide at ~6 MeV. The relatively low energy of the beam resulted in ballistic bunching and formation of enhanced peak currents at the DLW frequency (300 GHz). We discuss the theory and experimental realization.
