Do atoms produce synchrotron radiation?

Since synchrotron radiation is created when charged particles are radially accelerated and electrons are definitely orbiting a nucleus (assuming a Bohr model), electron should then logically emit ...

Is “microbunching” in a free electron laser limited by the Pauli exclusion principle?

As I understand it, a free electron laser can basically be pictured as a synchrotron light source with an undulator which by the particular setup causes the electrons to self-attune so that they ...

Tabletop Synchrotron

When I was undergraduate student I asked to my proffesor why nobody has made a synchrotron machine with a superconducting circular wire and magnetic field to accelerate electrons properly and to ...

Is there an orbit decay associated with synchrotron radiation of a relativistic particle?

I had a question about a particle (say a proton) with relativistic energies interacts with a magnetic field (in the z direction). As it is accelerates the particle emits synchrotron radiation. ...

Where does the factor of $\gamma^2$ come from in synchrotron radiation?

I've read the derivation for synchrotron radiation (as derived by Griffiths), so I know how to get it given the retarded potentials, etc. I'm having a hard time with intuition. The derivation in ...

Does a superconductor spinning in a magnetic field radiate?

According to the cyclotron radiation formula: $$ \frac{dE}{dt} = - \frac{\sigma_t B^2 V^2}{c \mu_0 }$$ charges will radiate even when moving perpendicular to the magnetic field (which presumably ...

How is specific output chosen in circular synchrotrons to radiate X-rays?

Accelerating charged particles are supposed to emit radiation. In sychrotrons does the particles emit always during the circular motion or only at specific location (undulator) ?

Introductory books or good review paper on Free Electron Lasers

I am looking for a beginners' book on Free Electron Lasers, particularly regarding the principles of the mechanism rather than the details of the implementation. I am particularly interested on the ...

Synchrotron radiation derivation

In the derivation of synchrotron radiation in a standard text (J.D. Jackson/Rybicki & Lightman), we do it by taking instantaneous circular motion of the electron, because the power emitted by ...
