Electron in oscillating electromagnetic field

  1. Jan 4, 2010 #1
    Hi !

    How one can calculate the spectrum of radiation emitted by the oscillating electron
    in the field of laser,

    the electric field of laser can be written as,

    E = Eo cos(w t)

    So, is the electron will emit the secondary radiation with same frequency 'w' or there will
    be a spectrum containing many frequency components.

    How the loss of energy (bremstralung emission) can be accounted for , is it like

    Laser Energy -> K.E. of electron + Energy radiated by electron

    Looking forward to hearing from fellow members.

    Thank you.
