Abstract: We calculate numerically the emissivity and surface flux of electron-electronbremsstrahlung radiation from the surface of a bare quark star. The restrictedelectronic phase space due to the presence of an effective photon mass resultsin a strong suppression. The emissivity and surface flux are found to besubstantially smaller than those found in previous work, to the point whereelectron-positron pair production would remain the dominant mechanism at alltemperatures in the relativistic regime. As a consequence, pair productionremains a dominant process even at low surface temperatures as originallysuggested by Usov in arXiv:astro-ph-9712304.
