This chapter derives the general solution for the electric and magnetic fields emitted by an accelerated relativistic charged particle using Maxwell’s equations as the starting point. This general solution is then applied to the case of a bending magnet and the photon flux and brightness levels found. Finally, it is shown that by using a special magnet called a wavelength shifter, it is possible to alter the output spectrum significantly to enhance the output at X-ray wavelengths.

Keywords:   electric field, bending magnet, Maxwell’s equations, flux, brightness, wavelength shifter, X-ray
