# Lorentz violation and synchrotron radiation

@article{Altschul2005LorentzVA, title={Lorentz violation and synchrotron radiation}, author={Brett Altschul}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2005}, volume={72}, pages={085003} }

We consider the radiation emitted by an ultrarelativistic charged particle moving in a magnetic field, in the presence of an additional Lorentz-violating interaction. In contrast with prior work, we treat a form of Lorentz violation that is represented by a renormalizable operator. Neglecting the radiative reaction force, the particle's trajectory can be determined exactly. The resulting orbit is generally noncircular and does not lie in the plane perpendicular to the magnetic field. We do not… Expand
