electromagnetic radiation emitted by charged particles as they pass through magnetic fields.
synchrotron radiation
electromagnetic radiation emitted in narrow beams tangential to the orbit of very high energy charged particles, such as electrons, spiralling along the lines of force in a strong magnetic field. It occurs in synchrotron accelerators and in many cosmic environments, such as radio galaxies and supernova remnants
synchrotron radiation
Electromagnetic radiation emitted by high-energy particles that are moving in a circular path, as in a synchrotron particle accelerator. Energy lost by synchrotron radiation increases rapidly as particles approach the speed of light.
