Beamstrahlung (from beam + bremsstrahlung ) is the radiation from one beam of charged particles in storage rings or linear colliders caused by its interaction with the electromagnetic field of the other beam.[1] Coined by J. Rees in 1978.[2]

It is a source of radiation loss in colliders, more specifically a type of synchrotron radiation.
