Quantum radiation from a uniformly accelerated oscillator
Abstract
Radiation from a quantum oscillator during its accelerated motion in vacuum is investigated. The spectrum and intensity of the radiation are calculated. An expression is derived for the energy flux from an oscillator interacting with a scalar massless field; the angular dependence of the energy flux density is calculated, and it is shown that this density is always positive. The results obtained are discussed in connection with general problems of the theory of quantum effects in accelerated frames.
