Problem set #12; due Thursday, April 17, in class.
Recall that the Compton shift is given by
Dl = lC ( 1- cosqs )
= 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?
