# de Broglie Wavelength and Frequency of the Scattered Electrons in Compton Effect

@article{Venugopal2012deBW, title={de Broglie Wavelength and Frequency of the Scattered Electrons in Compton Effect}, author={V. Venugopal and Piyush S Bhagdikar}, journal={arXiv: General Physics}, year={2012} }

The undergraduate courses on modern physics generally consider the particle interpretation of Compton effect. Motivated by a student's solution in an undergraduate examination on modern physics here we consider the wave characteristics of recoiled electrons in the Compton effect. The de Broglie wavelength, wave and clock frequency of the scattered electrons are expressed in terms of the wavelength and the frequency of the incident and the scattered photons respectively using the familiar… Expand
