## What is the Compton effect?

The Compton effect is the term used for an unusual result observed when X-rays are scattered on some materials. By classical theory, when an electromagnetic wave is scattered off atoms, the wavelength of the scattered radiation is expected to be the same as the wavelength of the incident radiation.

## How to Calculate Compton shift?

Compton shift calculator uses Compton shift=Wavelength of scattered beam-Wavelength of incident beam to calculate the Compton shift, The Compton shift formula is the separation of the two peaks which depends on the scattering angle,θ of the outgoing beam. Compton shift and is denoted by Δλ symbol.

### FAQ

What is Compton shift?
The Compton shift formula is the separation of the two peaks which depends on the scattering angle,θ of the outgoing beam and is represented as Δλ=λsi or Compton shift=Wavelength of scattered beam-Wavelength of incident beam. Wavelength of scattered beam is the wavelength of radiation spectrum peaks or intensity peaks at the scattered photon and Wavelength of incident beam is the wavelength of radiation spectrum peaks or intensity peaks at the incident photon.
How to calculate Compton shift?
The Compton shift formula is the separation of the two peaks which depends on the scattering angle,θ of the outgoing beam is calculated using Compton shift=Wavelength of scattered beam-Wavelength of incident beam. To calculate Compton shift, you need Wavelength of scattered beam s ) and Wavelength of incident beam i ). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Wavelength of scattered beam and Wavelength of incident beam and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
