    Well, actually I had read them!:wink: I want to know more about its cross section and its relationship with the scattering angle and energy of photon!
    here's a polar plot of it that I have drawn with Matlab but I just don't know why it looks this
    hmmm...Iguess it's better to be moved to Nuclear engineering form and I'd be grateful if you move it. Thanks:smile:

    Google "Compton Scattering", which is Thomson scattering in the relativistic regime with Kline-Nishina corrections to the differential and total cross sections.
