PennState Animations for Physics and Astronomy
More energy transferred to election at steeper angles
Intensity vs. Scattering Angle of Photons. Classical Theory vs. Compton’s Theory
The Compton Effect is used in Radiation therapy that treats both cancer and thyrotoxicosis
The CE also had revolutionary effects on medical biology. The 3-D Positron Emission Tomography scanner makes a 3-D model of the human brain.
The Compton Camera utilizes gamma imaging for spectroscopy
Compton Scattering and 3He Three-body Photodisintegration
"A High-pressure Polarized 3He Gas Target for the High Intensity Gamma Source (HIγS) Facility at Duke Free Electron Laser Laboratory", K. Kramer, X. Zong, R. Lu, D. Dutta, H. Gao, X. Qian, Q. Ye, X. Zhu, T. Averett, S. Fuchs, Nuclear Inst. and Methods in Physics Research, A, 582, 318-325, 2007
Compton Gamma Ray Observatory
The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory uses the principles of the Compton Effect as analytical equipment onboard the space shuttle Atlantis.
I could cover the Electromagnetic spectrum from 30 keV to 30 GeV.

Imaging Compton Telescope
Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope
The Oxygen molecules as dioxide and trioxide scatter the UV rays causing them to lose momentum and shift to the visible spectrum and appear blue.
