In science:

After the modulator, we add an uncorrelated energy spread of 0.56 keV to the beam to account for the synchrotron radiation effects inside the wiggler magnet.

For K > 1 the radiation (called wiggler radiation) is emitted into a cone of half-angle K/γ .
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
When K becomes larger than 1, a transition to the wiggler radiation spectrum occurs.
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
Above the limit where the deflection angle becomes comparable to, or larger than the beaming angle (K > 1), the spectrum enters the wiggler-domain.
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
The wiggler radiation spectrum is close to the synchrotron spectrum (Attwood, 2000).

Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
The peak frequency of synchrotron/wiggler radiation scales linearly with the maximum magnetic field strength.
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
We observe that as the strength of the magnetic field is increased, so that the typical de flection angle of the electron s becomes larger than the relativistic beaming angle, the resulting spectrum converges through the wiggler domain to the synchrotron case Attwood (2000).
