The spectral distribution of the cyclotron radiation emitted by non-ultra-relativistic electrons traveling through solenoidal lenses can be used to characterize ensemble-averaged properties of a beam. In this paper we explore the potential use of cyclotron radiation to measure the energy spread and transverse emittance of a beam while remaining unintrusive. We specifically discuss the relation between the spectral properties of cyclotron radiation and the beam statistical properties and perform first principle particle-in-cell simulation to validate our findings.
