• Compton scattering and FIRB spectrum

    From toadastronomer@gmail.com@21:1/5 to All on Mon Mar 26 14:16:52 2018

    It's my understanding that the secondary emissions from Compton
    scattering of a photon from a free electron, have energies equal
    to the kinetic energies of the recoiling free charges, and that the
    kinetic energy for each interaction is equal to the energy lost by
    the scattering photon.

    That being the case, should one expect any correlation between the
    average energy loss in Compton scattering taken over all space and
    the peak of the FIR background (FIRB) spectrum, at about 250 microns?
