We implement the theory of resonant scattering in the context of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarisation anisotropies. We compute the changes in the E-mode polarisation (EE) and Temperature E-mode (TE) CMB power spectra introduced by the scattering on a resonant transition with a given optical depth $\tau_X$ and polarisation coefficient $E_1$. The latter parameter, accounting for how anisotropic the scattering is, depends on the exchange of angular momentum in the transition and enables… Expand
