Role of the Reference Frame in Angular Photon Distribution at Electron-Positron Annihilation


The reasons of angular photon distribution occurrence at electron-positron annihilation are considered. It is shown that angular photon distribution is consequence of Doppler’s effect in the reference frame of the electron and positron mass center. In the reference frame bound with moving electron the angular photon distribution is absent. But it is replaced by the Doppler’s shift of photons frequencies. The received results are applied to the analysis of a positron-emission tomograph work.
