This Letter explores the influences of intracluster magnetic fields (1 μG) submerged in the hot electron gas on the classic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (SZE) and on the thermal bremsstrahlung in X-ray emissions. As the Larmor frequency is much higher than all collision frequencies, the presence of a magnetic field may lead to an anisotropic velocity distribution of hot electrons. For the two-temperature relativistic Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, we compute modifications to the classical thermal… Expand
