Anisotropic Inverse Compton Scattering in the Galaxy

Abstract

The inverse Compton scattering of interstellar photons off cosmic-ray electrons seems to play a more important rôle in the generation of diffuse emission from the Galaxy than thought before. The background radiation field of the Galaxy is highly anisotropic since it is dominated by the radiation from the Galactic plane. An observer in the Galactic plane… (More)
