Cyclotron emission from accretion plasma columns in magnetic cataclysmic variable stars
Astronomy and Astrophysics
Pure cyclotron spectra of polars produced during their low accretion states are deduced. We used the working hypothesis that the cyclotron emission is produced by electrons spiraling down the dipole magnetic field lines and forming an accretion plasma column on top of the magnetic pole of a white dwarf. The velocity distribution function of electrons emitting cyclotron radiation is assumed to be a bi-Maxwellian. Since the radiating electrons in a million-Gauss magnetic field seek theirdoi:10.1051/0004-6361:20041780 fatcat:ecvwdka6f5ezjpb6zl4ilvk3lu
