# Acceleration and cyclotron radiation induced by gravitational waves

@article{Papadopoulos2002AccelerationAC, title={Acceleration and cyclotron radiation induced by gravitational waves}, author={Demetrios B. Papadopoulos}, journal={Astronomy and Astrophysics}, year={2002}, volume={396}, pages={1045-1051} }

The equations that determine the response of a charged particle moving in a magnetic field to an incident gravi- tational wave (GW) are derived in the linearized approximation to general relativity. We briefly discuss several astrophysical applications of the derived formulae, taking into account the resonance between the wave and the particle's motion that occurs at!g = 2, whenever the GW is parallel to the constant magnetic field. In the case where the GW is perpendicular to the constant…
