Theory of Synchrotron Radiation

  • Helmut Wiedemann


The phenomenon of synchrotron radiation has been introduced in a conceptual way and a number of basic relations have been derived. In this chapter we will approach the physics of synchrotron radiation in a more formal way to exhibit detailed characteristics. Specifically, we will derive expressions for the spatial and spectral distribution of photon emission in a way which is applicable later for special insertion devices.
