Structured Targets and the Landau-pomeranchuk-migdal Effect *

Abstract

The Landau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal effect is the suppression of Bethe-Heitler radiation caused by multiple scattering in the target medium. In this paper, the quantum treatment given earlier for finite but homogeneous targets is extended to structured targets. It is shown that radiators composed of separated plates or of a medium with a varying radiation length… (More)
