Definitions for "Bremsstrahlung"
Radiation that is emitted when a free electron is deflected by an ion, but the free electron is not captured by the ion. Generally, it is a type of radiation emitted when high energy electrons are accelerated. (German for braking radiation)
Electromagnetic radiation generated when high-energy, charged particles rapidly decelerate during impact with a target.
3/4 (Literally: braking radiation). Electromagnetic radiation produced when an electrically charged particle, such as an electron, is slowed down by the electric field of an atomic nucleus.
