Compton Scattering
technical implementer: Laboratory Physicist Dean Hudek
edited by Laboratory Physicist Dean Hudek
The purpose of this experiment is to verify the energy dependence of gamma radiation upon scattering angle and to compare the differential cross section obtained from the data with those calculated using the Klein-Nishina formula and classical theory.
