Abstract: We reanalyze the problem of spontaneous photon emission in collapse models.We show that the extra term found by Bassi and Duerr is present for non-whitecolored noise, but its coefficient is proportional to the zero frequencyFourier component of the noise. This leads one to suspect that the extra termis an artifact. When the calculation is repeated with the final electron in awave packet and with the noise confined to a bounded region, the extra termvanishes in the limit of continuum state normalization. The result obtained byFu and by Adler and Ramazanoglu from application of the Golden Rule is thenrecovered.
