Gravitational radiation emitted by an electron in the field of a circularly polarized electromagnetic wave
Abstract
The gravitational radiation emitted by a charged particle in the field of a plane circularly polarized electromagnetic wave is considered in the linear approximation of general relativity. It is shown that, in distinction from the case of the gravitational radiation emitted by a relativistic particle in a slowly varying field, the intensity of the radiation increases proportional to the sixth power of the ratio E/m, rather than the fourth power. A formula is also obtained for the annihilation of a pair into one graviton in the presence of an electromagnetic wave. The limit of a static field is discussed.
