Tape is an even better use as an X-ray source than we thought," says Putterman, who in May in Applied Physics B: Lasers and Optics identified bremsstrahlung radiation as the X-ray source.
Among microwave tubes based on electron bremsstrahlung radiation in a constant magnetic field, the most common are CRMs or gyrodevices.
A) Cyclotron Resonance Masers: In CRMs, the main effect leading to electron bunching and to coherent bremsstrahlung radiation is the relativistic dependence of electron cyclotron frequency on its energy.
For wavelengths longer than 3 millimeters, microwave emissions from electrons in the galaxy -- synchrotron radiation from electrons spiraling around magnetic fields and bremsstrahlung radiation, created when electrons collide with atomic nuclei - are the major foreground contaminants.
In the first step, electrons striking the grating produce bremsstrahlung radiation.
