Compton electron scattering in the 0.1 to 5.0 GeV energy range


Journal Article

We have measured the Compton electron spectrum coming from photons produced from the decays of π0 mesons. The production rate agrees well with that predicted from the Klein-Nishina formula. The agreement, expressed as a ratio R between the predicted and the measured numbers of Compton electrons, is as follows: For Compton-electron energies between 0.1 and 5.0 GeV, R=1.03±0.07; for energies between 0.8 and 5.0 GeV, R=0.95±0.14. © 1978 The American Physical Society.
