Sub-picosecond electron pulses are desirable for generating femtosecond X-ray pulses. By numerical simulation, it has become clear that racetrack microtron (RTM) has unique features to produce very short electron bunches by itself. In addition, it has proved experimentally that RTM has beneficial characteristics to accelerate only an excellent quality beam in both emittance and energy spread. The measured and calculated results of such distinctives are shown in this paper.
