According to the Larmor equation [26], the power of radio emissions generated by the accelerating charged particle is proportional to the square of the magnitude of the acceleration,
Figure 4b plots the power of radio emissions normalized to the power at the initial state, in terms of the Larmor equation (10) and the acceleration (1).
