In this paper we study solitary waves for the coupled system of Schrödinger- Maxwell equations in the three-dimensional space. We prove the existence of a sequence of radial solitary waves for these equations with a fixed L2 norm. We study the asymptotic behavior and the smoothness of these solutions. We show also that the eigenvalues are negative and the first one is isolated.
