Bremsstrahlung of hot quantum plasma

  • J. Kvasnica
  • J. Horáček


The classical Debye field is replaced by the respective quantum modification for a hot quantum plasma. The bremsstrahlung spectrum and the total bremsstrahlung intensity are investigated in detail. The results of numerical calculations are tabulatedvs. the characteristic parameterβ=ℏω0 /kT, whereω0 is the plasma frequency and other symbols have their standard meaning. It is found that the deviations from the bremsstrahlung of a classical plasma become significant for the valuesβ≳10−2. These modifications are to be taken into consideration in the interpretation of the bremsstrahlung measurements.
