RADIOASTRONOMÍA VI - Fuentes de Radio en el Universo - 2) LA RADIACIÓN SINCROTRÓN

Las partículas con carga eléctrica, (electrones, protones, iones ...), cuando son aceleradas y alcanzan velocidades altas, (una fracción apreciable de la velocidad de la luz ~ partículas relativistas), generan una radiación electromagnética característica denominada 'radiación sincrotrón'.  El nombre viene de su descubrimiento en 1946 en un acelerador sincrotrón de General Electric.  Un acelerador sincrotrón es un acelerador de partículas en el que se 'obliga' a éstas a mantener un movimiento circular mediante campos magnéticos, aumentando su velocidad a medida que dan vueltas en el acelerador gracias a un campo eléctrico oscilante en un punto de la trayectoria.

  • Mercury's mysterious 'darkness' explained
    Scientists have long been puzzled by Mercury's very dark surface. Previously, scientists proposed that the darkness came from carbon accumulated by comet impacts. Now scientists confirm that carbon is present at Mercury's surface, but that it most likely originated deep below the surface, in the form of a now-disrupted and buried ancient graphite-rich crust, which was later brought to the surface via impacts after most of the current crust formed.
  • The expansion of the Universe simulated
    The universe is constantly expanding. But how does our universe evolve? Physicists have now developed a new code of numerical simulations that offers a glimpse of the complex process of the formation of structures in the universe. Based on Einstein's equations, they were able to integrate the rotation of space-time into their calculations and calculate the amplitude of gravitational waves.
  • Cosmochemists find evidence for unstable heavy element at solar system formation
    Scientists have discovered evidence in a meteorite that a rare element, curium, was present during the formation of the solar system. This finding ends a 35-year-old debate on the possible presence of curium in the early solar system, and plays a crucial role in reassessing models of stellar evolution and synthesis of elements in stars.
