With respect to the emission mechanism, the radiation is distinguished between two types: (a) Bremsstrahlung, coming from the component of the acceleration colinear with the particle velocity, and therefore relevant to the ballistic part of the motion, (b) Cyclotron, coming from the acceleration component perpendicular to the velocity, and therefore connected to the rotating part of the motion.
