cyclotron radiation

(radiation emitted when charged particles are accelerated)

Cyclotron radiation is radiation emitted by a charged particle when it is accelerated and traveling at less than relativistic speed. It can be generated in magnetic fields in space. Characteristics:

The period of the particle's orbit is inversely proportional to the magnetic field, making such radiation a means detecting characteristics of magnetic fields.

Radiation from near-light-speed charged particles is called synchrotron radiation.
