Characteristics of Synchrotron Radiation

  • E. Burattini
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 242)


When relativistic electrons experience centripetal acceleration due to the presence of a magnetic field, they emit electromagnetic waves that are commonly called “synchrotron radiation” because first observed in the visible region, at the 70 MeV small electrosynchrotron, by a research group working in 1947 at the General Electric Research Laboratory (Schenectady — N.Y.).
