I Gamma ray cross sections from classical plane wave

  1. Apr 30, 2017 #1
    I am aware that in classical electrodynamics a metal exponentially attenuates TEM waves. I am wondering if this fact is sufficient to obtain estimates of the cross section of low energy gamma rays in metals. Obviously it would fail for higher energy gamma rays where Compton scattering and pair production dominate.
