Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 165)


Coherent bremsstrahlung—the radiation which is emitted by electrons while crossing a succession of crystal planes, and channeling radiation—emitted while the electrons propagate along a crystal plane or axis in an oscillatory fashion—represent two aspects of the same radiation phenomenon. Examples of recent research on these phenomena are given. The intermediate process involving free-bound transitions is studied here regarding its kinematics, radiation intensity, and polarization.
