Electromagnetic Radiation from a Nuclear Explosion in Space
A mechanism of radiating a high-frequency radio signal based on the emission of gamma rays from a nuclear explosion in space. The gamma rays from a nuclear explosion in space Compton-scatter electrons near the surface of the device or in a surrounding material shield. The scattered electrons leave the surface and are accelerated back toward it by the positively charged matter. Provided they are asymmetrically distributed the accelerating electrons radiate an electromagnetic signal. The electron motions are analyzed, the electromagnetic signal is estimated, and its detectability is examined.
