Bremsstrahlung production by colliding beams of protons and electrons



The differential cross section of bremsstrahlung emitted in the head-on collision of beams of energetic protons and electrons is calculated in the laboratory frame. The angular distribution of the photons is more isotropic than in the common bremsstrahlung production on stationary target atoms. The total cross section is determined by integration over the photon angles which are allowed kinematically.
