This process, which measures double diffractive deeply virtual Compton scattering
for two spacelike photons, is illustrated in Figure 8.
In 1927, Klein (5) discussed how the interaction between an electron and an electromagnetic field including Compton scattering
should be treated quantum mechanically.
This is because the process of Compton scattering
is a predominant mechanism .
is an interaction between photons and charged particles such as electrons [4,5].
For Compton scattering
the Z dependence is linear and the dominant energy region varies within the range between 150 keV and 3 MeV.
where [mu] is X-ray linear attenuation coefficient, [rho] is the electron density, a is a fitting parameter, Z is the effective atomic number, E is X-ray photon energy, and [f.sub.KN](E) is the Klein-Nishina function which yields the electronic cross section of Compton scattering
. Finally X-ray photons are transformed into visible light photons detected by back-end optoelectronic devices.
It was observed that the variation is negligible between 0.5 and 5MeV where Compton scattering
Individual chapters are devoted to the main branches of inelastic X-ray scattering: nonresonant inelastic X-ray scattering with characteristic valence electron excitations, nonresonant inelastic X-ray scattering with core- electron excitation, X-ray Raman scattering, the Compton scattering
regime, and resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) spectroscopy.
These devices use the gamma-electron spin dependent part of the Compton scattering
cross section to filter out gammas of a particular polarization state.
Because of the minimal angle of the beam, background "white" radiation and Compton scattering
are minimized, thereby increasing the sensitivity of the analysis.
