Magnetic and electric fields can cause a charged particle to form interesting trajectories. In general, each trajectory is discussed separately in university physics textbooks for undergraduate students. In this work, a solution of a charged particle moving in a uniform electric field at right angles to a uniform magnetic field (uniform crossed electric and magnetic fields) is reported; it is limited to particle motion in a plane. Specific solutions and their trajectories are obtained only by…

Orbits of two electrons released from rest in a uniform transverse magnetic field
Two identical charged particles released from rest repel each other radially. A uniform perpendicular magnetic field will then cause their trajectories to curve into a flower petal pattern. The orbit

Photodetachment of H− in parallel electric and magnetic fields near metal surface
The influence of electric field on the photodetachment of H− in magnetic field near a metal surface has been studied using the closed-orbit theory. It is found that the photodetachment of H− in the

TLDR
A simple analytic formula is obtained for the photodetachment cross section of H[sup [minus] in crossed electric and magnetic fields and the three-dimensional semiclassical approximation predicts oscillations in the spectrum and these oscillations are correlated with closed classical orbits.
Photodetachment of H– ion in perpendicular electric and magnetic fields near a metal surface
The photodetachment of the H– ion in perpendicular electric and magnetic fields near a metal surface has been investigated on the basis of the semiclassical closed-orbit theory. Firstly, we give a ...
