Bremsstrahlung produced by colliding particles in an external electric field

  • 23 Accesses

Abstract

We have used the nonrelativistic dipole Born approximation to study bremsstrahlung from two colliding charged particles in a uniform electric field. We have calculated the differential cross sections for photon emission as the system transitions into various states of internal motion. We find the cross sections exhibit spatial anisotropy due to the uniform electric field, and that oscillations can arise that are probably due to interference effects between the colliding particles.
