Formula name

COMPTON EFFECT

Description

Compton effect

Syntax

/*The difference Δλ in wavelength of a photon before and after colliding with an electron resulting in a scattering angle φ . */
Δλ = [h] / ([me]*[c]) * (1-COS(φ))

Notes

The compton effect describes the shift in wavelength of a photon colliding with matter.
φ is the scattering angle (deviation of the photons incoming path).
