Numerical approach to the semiclassical method of radiation emission for arbitrary electron spin and photon polarization

27 Sep 2019 Wistisen T. N. Di Piazza A.

We show how the semiclassical formulas for radiation emission of Baier, Katkov and Strakhovenko for arbitrary initial and final spins of the electron and arbitrary polarization of the emitted photon can be rewritten in a form which numerically converges quickly. We directly compare the method in the case of a background plane wave with the result obtained by using the Volkov state solution of the Dirac equation, and confirm that we obtain the same result...
