The Non-Thermal Continuum from the Crab Nebula: The ‘Synchro-Compton’ Interpretation

  • M. J. Rees (a1)

Abstract

The continuum emission from the Crab Nebula may be radiation from relativistic electrons moving in the electromagnetic wave field radiated by the rotating magnetic dipole of the pulsar. This radiation, called Synchro-Compton radiation, would show ordering over the whole nebula, as is observed in measurements of polarisation. The properties of this radiation are described in an Appendix.
