Photoelectric effect - scattering differential cross section

  1. Dec 7, 2004 #1
    What is the differential cross section for photo-electric effect? Is there a paper that explains this in more detail?
    Thanks in advance for any responses!

    G. Petite et al. Phys. Rev. B v.45, p.12210 (1992). They also give the cross section for 2-photon, 5-photon, and 10-photon absorption process.

    Er... you do know what a "differential cross-section" is, don't you? I thought Eq. 1 is that obvious?
