Abstract

In recent years a great deal of theoretical work has been devoted to the description of the interaction of ultrarelativistic electrons and positrons and high energy photons moving along the major directions of crystals.1–9 It was predicted that quantum electrodynamic (QED) effects must be taken into account. In particular, the perfect alignment of photons with a crystal axis was predicted to increase the pair production rate above the Bethe-Heitler (BH) value.
