Abstract:

This research project was concerned with a theoretical investigation of the generation of electromagnetic radiation in polarizable or conducting media by relativistic charged particles. Results are contained in the following papers Generation of Coherent X-Rays by a Relativistic Charged Particle Traveling Through a Crystal Generation of Coherent Radiation in a Resonant Medium by a Relativistic Charged Particle, Cerenkov Radiation at the Resonance Frequency of an Amplifying Medium Generation of Cerenkov Radiation at the Cyclotron Frequency of a Conducting Medium Set of Electric Dipoles Under the Influence of an External Field and Equivalence of the Ewald-Oseen Extinction Theorem as a Non-Local Boundary Value Problem with Maxwells Equations and Boundary Conditions.
