I know that when an electron gets accelerated (changes direction) in an electric field it emits a photon. An ad-hoc way of explaining this is, that the acceleration of the electron causes a ripple in the electromagnetic field and this ripple is the wave package of the photon.
Alright, but is there a simple, intuitive explanation why the same (electron emitting a photon) doesn't happen when the electron gets accelerated in a magnetic field? Isn't the magnetic field a component of the electromagnetic radiation? And further thinking - ss there some analogous particle, some kind of a particle with a magnetic field, that when accelerated in a magnetic field also emits photons?
