  • THAT a quantum of radiation can be absorbed in part by an atomic system, and the remaining part scattered by it giving rise to a radiation of increased wave-length, has been demonstrated by recent work on the scattering of light in material media. In his address on “A New Radiation” (Ind. Jour. Phys., vol. 2, p. 398, Mar. 31, 1928) Raman pointed out that precisely similar effects should also be observable in the case of X-ray scattering. In other words, in addition to the Compton type, we… CONTINUE READING
