Abstract:

The phenomenology of generic Compton scattering, including free and bound electrons, is discussed in terms of the atomic form factor and incoherent scattering function. Using Thomas-Fermi data for these functions, average and differential collision cross sections have been calculated for air for incident photon energies from 0.01 to 1000 kev. An electron binding factor a sigma is defined, which, when multiplied into Klein-Nishina free electron collision cross sections, introduces the effect of electron binding.
