Abstract

Following the classic work of McMillan and of Bohm and Foldy, we have developed a phase equation describing the microsynchrocyclotron acceleration process in geonium. By computer integration of this equation, we are able to confirm that, by making use of the slight relativistic spin dependence of the zero-energy cyclotron frequencies, the acceleration process can be made selective enough to distinguish between spin-up and spin-down states. Quantum effects have been allowed for approximately.
