Synchrotron radiation emitted by a relativistic electron travelling in a curved trajectory. B is the magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of the electron orbit; ψ is the natural opening angle in the vertical plane; P is the direction of polarization. The slit S defines the length of the arc of angle Δθ from which the radiation is taken. From Buras & Tazzari (1984[link]); courtesy of ESRP.
