high-energy electromagnetic radiation in the X-ray energy range emitted by charged particles slowing down by scattering off atomic nuclei


  • NOTE 1 The primary particle is ultimately absorbed while the bremsstrahlung can be highly penetrating. In space, the most common source of bremsstrahlung is electron scattering.
  • NOTE 2 Its energy is continuously distributed down from the energy of the incident particle.
