MatSE 405: Microstructure Determination mselogo.jpg

Problem set #12; due Thursday, April 17, in class.
  1. Recall that the Compton shift is given by

    Dl = lC ( 1- cosqs )

    lC = h

    m0 c
    = 2.43 pm
    where qs is the scattering angle (not the Bragg angle). What is the shift in energy for Compton scattering of a Cu Ka x-ray when qs = 60? Is this energy change large or small compared to the binding energy of valence electrons?
