Radiative electron capture to the continuum and the short-wavelength limit of electron-nucleus bremsstrahlung in 90A MeV U88 + ((1s2)(2s2))+N2 Collisions



Radiative electron capture to the continuum and the short-wavelength limit of electron-nucleus bremsstrahlung in 90A MeV U88 + ((1s2)(2s2))+N2 Collisions



Physical Review Letters 99(16): 163201



We have measured the continuum momentum distribution for radiative electron capture to the continuum (RECC) cusp electrons in 90A MeV U88+ + N2-->U88+ + N2 +* + ecusp(0 degrees ) + hnu (RECC) collisions. We demonstrate that x rays coincident with RECC cusp electrons originate from the short-wavelength limit of the electron-nucleus bremsstrahlung and explain the asymmetric cusp shape by comparison with theory within the relativistic impulse approximation.
