In the Aharonov–Bohm effect when charged particles are deflected do they emit light?
I don't believe so. I think MFB was referring to the fact that in the Aharonov-Bohm experiment the charged particles don't have to be deflected in order for the interference to be shifted. To get a charged particle to emit light you need to accelerate it somehow, such as with an electric or magnetic field. If there is no acceleration then there is no light emission.so I can get an electron to emit light even if its not in a B or E field.
