Behavior of electron spin in an external axisymmetric electrostatic field

  • 15 Accesses


The self-orientation of the spin of an ultrarelativistic electron in an external axisymmetric focusing electrostatic field is investigated qualitatively. The conditions under which a collective phenomenon of this kind occurs and its nature are clarified
