Abstract

The cross-section of free-free transitions (inverse bremsstrahlung) in the solar interior is calculated including corrections due to relativistic dynamics and the distribution function of the electrons. The reduction of the radiative opacity due to these effects is discussed in view of its importance for the neutrino production rate in the solar interior.
