    • A method for constructing radial wave packets with application to target distortion in electron-atom collisions

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      It has been shown that an analysis of radial stationary state wave functions of a particle in terms of their loops leads to such continuous, single-valued and finite functions which represent a practically convenient form of the radial wave packets of that particle at various positions. The radial wave packets have been used to investigate target distortion in electron-atom collisions. The distortion of the target is defined in terms of quantum-mechanical probabilities given by the wave packets. A closed expression which depends upon the position of the colliding electron, is obtained for the potential energy of the target in the field of the colliding electron.

    • Quantum beats from channeling relativistic electrons

      Possibility has been explored of periodic time variation of intensity (quanturn beats) of radiation emitted from relativistic electrons channeling along the 〈110〉 axis of a crystal of f.c.c. (diamond) lattice structure.

    • Coherent bremsstrahlung from relativistic channelled positrons

      R Lal S K Joshi

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Poor beam collimation leads to overcompensation of suppression of coherent bremsstrahlung in the axial channelling case. This fact has been used to study the effect of beam divergence on the radiation emitted by relativistic (axially) channelled positrons. It has been found that due to beam divergence in the experiment of Alguard and co-workers in which radiation of 56 MeV positrons channelling along 〈110〉 rows of a silicon crystal is observed, coherent bremsstrahlung becomes an important contributing factor to the high frequency part of the observed spectrum.
