Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Presently new experiments on channeling radiation by both 150 MeV electrons and 400 MeV positrons are planned at the LNF facilities. These experiments require the preliminary theoretical treatment. The channeling radiation spectrum is formed by transitions between bound energy levels of transverse motion of a channeled particle. The intensity of channeling radiation lines depends on populations of bound energy levels. These populations change during the projectile motion in a crystal that, in turn, influences the channeling radiation intensities. In this manuscript we present theoretical model and computer simulations to investigate the bound energy spectra of planar-channeled electrons and positrons as well as to obtain the populations of bound states. Solving the kinetic equations we explore the dynamics of bound state populations.
