Arthur H. Compton observed the scattering of x-rays from electrons in a carbon target and found scattered x-rays with a longer wavelength than those incident upon the target.
Arthur Holly Compton (1891 - 1961) received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1927 for the discovery of the phenomenon named after him the Compton effect. The Compton effect is a reduction in the energy ...
