Pulsar radiation at quantum level

  1. Dec 29, 2013 #1
    Hey, as per i know pulsars emit EM radiation . . . Can anyone please explain the reason behind this in terms of quantum mechanics. I wanna know what happens at the quantum level. All I know is that it takes place due to misalignment of magnetic and rotational axis...

    I am in high school so it is my request to explain it accordingly...

    Well, since you don't know any quantum mechanics yet, that's a pretty tall order. More importantly, a classical description is perfectly good to explain pulsar radiation.

    Ya then i will have to study it in detail to find the answer.
