Simulation of the paths and the corresponding radiation spectra of relativistic particles in crystals

  • 14 Accesses

Abstract

Within the framework of classical electrodynamics we have developed a method of simulating the radiation spectra of relativistic particles in crystals, using computer tracking of the particle paths. We classify the characteristic types of paths and the corresponding radiation spectra of negatively charged particles moving along crystallographic axes. An analysis is made of how the fact that the time of motion along a characteristic path is finite and that the paths are not closed affects the shape of the radiation spectra. All of the characteristic features of the spectra are illustrated by calculations for 56-MeV electrons moving along the axes of crystals, <100> in the case of silicon and <110> in the case of diamond.
