Compton scattering , discovered by Arthur Holly Compton , is the scattering of a photon by a charged particle, usually an electron. It results in a decrease in energy increase in wavelength of the photon which may be an X-ray or gamma ray photon , called the Compton effect. Part of the energy of the photon is transferred to the recoiling electron. Inverse Compton scattering occurs when a charged particle transfers part of its energy to a photon. Compton scattering is an example of inelastic scattering  of light by a free charged particle, where the wavelength of the scattered light is different from that of the incident radiation.

This paper describes the effect of the volume of the source on the contribution of Bremsstrahlung to the global effect measured.
The experimental curves obtained for beta- and beta-gamma-emitters and electron capture nuclides are discussed. The radioisotopes used in medicine and biology, such as 32 P, 42 K, 90 Y, I, Au, produce considerable Bremsstrahlung. The correction factors, which vary from 1. The specific calibration coefficients were determined taking into account corrections determined previously as a function of the radionuclide under consideration and of the source-chamber geometry.
