We calculate the self Compton spectrum of synchro‐curvature radiation of power‐law distributed electrons. We find that the resulting spectrum can be different from the traditional radiation mechanisms if parameters are within the proper range. This result could be considered as a universal approach of moving electron’s self Compton emission, and could be applied to many astrophysical phenomena, including GRBs and pulsars. We also discuss the cooling effect of electron distribution as well as Klein‐Nishina cutoff in order to get a more accurate picture.
