Spectrum of flux for a synchrontron source

  1. Nov 24, 2007 #1
    The spectrum of flux for a synchrontron source ( AGN for example) drops off at low frequencies. Is that a sensible situation? How comes??

    I don't know if this helps - http://www.vlti.org/events/assets/1/proceedings/6.5_Tristram.pdf [Broken] - http://www.vlti.org/events/assets/1/proceedings/6.5_Tristram.pdf [Broken]

    What does one mean by low frequency? IR, visible, X-ray as opposed to gamma-ray?
