Coherence constraints on physical parameters at bright radio sources and FRB emission mechanism

28 Feb 2020 Lyutikov Maxim Purdue University Rafat Mohammad The University of Sydney

We discuss physical constrains that observations of high brightness temperature coherent radio emission, with brightness temperatures as high as $T_b \sim 10^{35}$ K, impose on the plasma parameters at relativistically moving astrophysical sources. High brightness temperatures imply a minimal plasma energy density at the source... (read more)
