Abstract

We discuss the electromagnetic potential of partially polarized light, which includes as a special case linearly polarized lasers, and the radiation of free electrons induced by such beams. A classical electrodynamics calculation is performed in order to obtain the low-order harmonic cross sections at low beam intensities. According to the correspondence principle for radiation processes in the Thomson limit, we find agreement between our results and those of quantum electrodynamics. The implications of this correspondence for processes at arbitrary intensities, relativistic electrons, and pulsed beams are also underlined.
