Abstract

We study theoretically the angular momentum of radiation emitted at axial channeling of the fast particles in a crystal or in a bunch of micro- or nanotubes placed in strong magnetic field. It is shown that high energy particles channeled in the presence of magnetic field are effective source of vortex radiation in the X-ray and gamma-range of photons energies. We show that there are two factors that increase the angular momentum of emitted radiation in the presence of magnetic field. First, the magnetic field favours additional “twisting” of the channeled particles in a certain direction and, secondly, the particles that have the corresponding initial angular momentum are predominantly captured into the channeling mode. Dependence of the angular momentum of radiation on the value of magnetic field and on the incident angle is studied.
