bremsstrahlung

Definitions

Astronomy

  • (written as Bremsstrahlung)
    Radiation given out by fast-moving electrons or other particles encountering electromagnetic fields, observed especially in radio astronomy. Bremsstrahlung energy is released because of severe deceleration of electrons in a magnetic field and is observable in cosmic radiation.

Electronics

  • The radiation produced when charged particles, such as electrons, are decelerated or deflected by atomic nuclei. X-rays are an example of this form of radiation. Also called bremsstrahlung radiation.
