Simulation of coherent synchrotron radiation emission from rotating relativistic electron layers.

Abstract

The electromagnetic radiation of rotating relativistic electron layers is studied numerically using particle-in-cell simulation. This system is general enough to be applied to problems involving the coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) instability in bunch compressors and possibly in radio pulsars where the CSR instability may be used to explain the high… (More)
