Radiation by an Accelerated Charge

The plot shows the power distribution of an accelerated charge. The acceleration is positive and along the axis. The expression evaluated is the exact solution for a relativistic charge; you can control the velocity of the charge, , where is the dimensional velocity and is the speed of light. The gray line is the direction of maximum power.
