Examples

  • And a quark star would give off a dim light (called bremsstrahlung emission), unlike a black hole, emitted by a thin layer of electrons on its surface.

  • This sort of faster-than-light communication seems possible in LR, and LR would not violate the measured speed limits on light for things like radio waves and bremsstrahlung radiation.

  • So an accelerating charged particle not only has electromagnetic radiation (like bremsstrahlung and radio waves) associated with it, but it has the basic electrostatic field surrounding it, and that field moves lock step instantaneously with the particle.

  • The basement was crowded with wires, mismatched surplus Laboratory Capacitors from Bell Labs good thing Murph worked security there, it certainly helped with the “midnight requisitions”, a jumble of Magnatrons, Tesla single node vacuum tubes using bremsstrahlung effect waves focused through Geissler tubes to create a a vertical ionized channel that would open up a dimensional gateway to another possible alternate universe.

  • No, braking radiation: bremsen "brake", as an electron might have to do passing near a nucleus.

  • Of course, of coarse, I just can't spell.
