Photon beams produced by inverse Compton scattering of laser light by relativistic electrons have scientific, technological, industrial and medical applications.
An interesting espahamento of the Compton effect occurs in a frontal collision between the photon and the electron with the photon being backscattered, in which case the energy of the scattered photon is maximum and can be even of the order of magnitude of the energy of the incident electron. Compton was awarded the Nobel Prize in for the “discovery of the effect named after him”.
Index Great experiments of physics Reference: The shift of the wavelength increased with scattering angle according to the Compton formula:. Compton observed the scattering of x-rays from electrons in a carbon target and found scattered x-rays with a longer wavelength than those incident upon the target.
Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract. However, remote access to EBSCO’s databases from non-subscribing institutions is not allowed if the purpose of the use is for commercial gain through cost reduction or avoidance for a non-subscribing institution.
Compton explained and modeled the data by assuming a particle photon nature for light and applying conservation espalhamenfo energy and conservation of momentum to the collision between the photon and the electron. This abstract may be abridged.
The shift of the wavelength increased with scattering angle according to the Compton formula: Remote access to EBSCO’s databases is permitted to patrons of subscribing institutions accessing from remote locations for personal, non-commercial use. However, users espalamento print, download, or email articles for individual use. At a time early ‘s when the particle photon nature of light suggested by the photoelectric effect was still being debated, the Compton experiment gave clear and independent evidence of particle-like behavior.
The physicist Arthur Holly Compton used the quantum theory to explain how the scattering of light quantum by electrons takes place, a phenomenon known as Compton effect.
