  • Within the classical Maxwell-Chern-Simons limit of the standard-model extension, the emission of light by uniformly moving charges is studied confirming the possibility of a Cerenkov-type effect. In this context, the exact radiation rate for charged magnetic point dipoles is determined and found in agreement with a phase-space estimate under certain assumptions.
