When a nucleus decays by orbital electron capture, tho disintegration energy can be shared by a photon and a neutrino. This electromagnetic radiation, which accompanies some of the disintegration and is called inner Bremsatrahlung, has a continuous energy distribution. This distribution in energy ranges from zero to an upper limit which is tho disintegration energy minus the binding energy of the captured electron. Morrison and Schiff (1) made an effort to predict the intensity of this energy spectrum by considering only electron capture from the IS state. More recently Glauber and Martin (2, 3) have developed an expression for the predicted intensity by considering capture from tho different electron states as well as relativistic and screening effects.
