Lett. 114, 1162501 (2015). The article was highlighted as an Editors' Suggestion. You can also read the Viewpoint commentary on the article written by Patrick Huber.
First Observation of Single Electron Cyclotron Radiation
August 25, 2014
The Project 8 collaboration is proud to announce the first observation of relativistic cyclotron radiation from single electrons! We detect individual electrons from a gasseous 83mKr source. Since the frequency of the relativistic cyclotron radiation is inversely proportional to the kinetic energy of the electrons, we use this technique to make a spectroscopic measurement of the 83mKr internal conversion electron lines. This new spectroscopic technique is called Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy (CRES). Please see the preprint of our paper announcing these results for more details.
