Emission Mechanism in Pulsars

Abstract

In a new model of the emission from pulsars based on the relativistic beaming effect, the source of the radiation is the circular motion of high energy electrons round magnetic field lines. The radio emission at the gyrofrequency is from coherent bunches of electrons, and the optical and X-ray emission is the incoherent synchrotron radiation from the same… (More)
