What is Compton wavelength?

The Compton wavelength is the quantum mechanical property of a particle and is defined as the wavelength of the particle equal to the wavelength of the photon with the same mass. It is well explained through the process called Compton scattering. The standard Compton wavelength is denoted by the Greek letter λ (Lambda).

How to Calculate Compton wavelength of electron?

Compton wavelength of electron calculator uses compton_wavelength = [hP]/(Rest mass of electron*[c]) to calculate the Compton wavelength, The Compton wavelength of electron is equal to the wavelength of a photon whose energy is the same as the mass of that particle. Compton wavelength and is denoted by λc symbol.
