Production of Pairs by Linear Acceleration Emission

  • D. B. Melrose (a1)

Abstract

The possibility is considered that core emission in pulsars results from secondary e± pairs generated through linear acceleration emission (LAE), rather than the conventional curvature emission (CE). It is found that this is possible in principle, but only under conditions that appear not to be satisfied in practice.
