Synchrotron radiation has markedly different behavior in ∼ 10     keV and in ∼ 100     keV plasma. We show that high-energy electrons that occupy the tail of velocity distribution function have disproportionate impact on power loss of ∼ 100     keV plasma. If electrons with energy more than cutoff energy are redistributed while keeping the Maxwellian distribution function below cutoff energy intact, both emission and absorption of synchrotron radiation act to decrease the lost power. These novel radiation transport effects in non-equilibrium plasma suggest large utility in the deconfinement of high-energy electrons to reduce synchrotron radiation in applications where the radiation is deleterious.
