Wanted: good book on photon radiation emission

  1. Apr 15, 2007 #1
    I own and have read numerous books about quantum electrodynamics and also classical EM. But sadly, I have yet to find a good book that describes how EM generates photon-based radiation. E.g. the process by which a radio wave comes into existence -- at a deeper level -- not just Maxwell, Abraham-Lorentz, Dirac, etc., but the real physics of the process.

    Has anyone here come across such a book? Many thanks!

    Sorry, some of you may think this is a rhetorical question. It is not. I'm actually polling to find out if anyone actually has found such a text.

    Have you considered the energy of photons at radio frequencies?

    Hi las3rjock, yes, absolutely. That's why I'm looking for a deeper clarification in a published text. It's not well addressed.
