Abstract

The synchrotron photon spectrum in heavy ion collisions is computed taking into account the spatial and temporal structure of the magnetic field. It is found that a significant fraction of photon excess in heavy ion collisions in the region k⊥ = 1–3 GeV can be attributed to the synchrotron radiation. Azimuthal anisotropy of the synchrotron photon spectrum is characterized by the Fourier coefficients v2 = 4/7 and v4 = 1/10 that are independent of photon momentum and centrality.
