Abstract

Synchrotron radiation is the radiation of relativistic electrons in the large scale and ordered magnetic field. Relativistic electrons radiation in random and small-scale magnetic fields is different to the synchrotron radiation. We propose a special case which is described as jitter radiation. The random and small-scale magnetic fields can be generated by turbulence. Jitter polarization can be calculated. The radiative transfer of jitter polarization is also considered. This physical scenario can be applied to the GRB and blazar studies.
