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 ...

What is the difference between wigglers, bending magnets and undulators?

At storage ring of a synchrotron we have three systems: wigglers, bending magnets and undulators, which have influence on the electron flow. Could you answer, what exact difference between them in a ...
