Absorption in the medium, i.e. an imaginary part of the dielectric permittivity, can lead to arising of Cherenkov radiation at high frequencies – X-Ray and XUV. In this paper X-Ray Diffraction radiation from a bunch of ultra-relativistic electrons moving near an absorbing target is investigated theoretically. In these conditions the Cherenkov radiation arises even when trajectories of the particles does not cross the target. The spatial distribution of the radiation usually represents the cone with the axis in forward direction with thickness proportional to the imaginary part of dielectric permittivity. In this paper it is shown that taking into account the refraction and reflection of the waves at the surface of the target leads to essential changes in spatial distribution of radiation. We give analytical description of the XUV Cherenkov and diffraction radiation from the bunch of charged particles. We show that the spatial distribution of radiation is not symmetrical in relation to the top face of the target.
