    • Abstract

       

      Differential cross-sections for Compton scatterig of 0.279 MeV gamma rays fromK-shell electrons of lead are measured at scattering angles ranging from 30 to 150° to study the effect of binding on the scattering process. Measurements are made employing two Nal(Tl) scintillation spectrometers and a slow-fast coincidence set-up of 30 nsec resolving time. The experimental results are compared with the available theoretical data. The totalK-shell Compton scattering cross-section is 34% of the free electron Compton cross-section.
