P5_6 Compton Scattering Shapes

Hannah Clear, Daniel Evan, George McGilvray, Edward Turner


In this paper we discuss how the wavelength of a photon would change if repeatedly scattered, via the Compton scattering process, by stationary electrons aligned such that the photon traces out a regular polygon of n sides. We find that for small n there is a much larger change in wavelength which rapidly decreases, then the change in wavelength asymptotically approaches 0.
