Abstract:

Quantum limitations on classical bremmstrahlung calculations are discussed. It is shown that the minimum impact parameter for low energy or about 13 eV electrons is about e sup 4h2 pi m sup 3v sup 5 sup 13. Oppenheims results, purporting to show that the power radiated in a plasma is greater than previously predicted, are explained and shown to be invalid. Author
