We present our latest results concerning the radiation spectrum emitted by a relativistic charged particle at strong coupling, employing the theoretical techniques provided by the AdS/CFT correspondence. We compare with other recent analyses of this problem with heavy quarks [1,2], and in our case we do find deviations from the (classical) Lienard formula once we take into account all the relevant quantum effects.
