The Compton Effect is a phenomenon first described by Arthur Holly Compton in 1923. It occurs when a photon of a given energy interacts with an electron, causing the electron to be scattered and the photon to lose some energy in the process. This effect is the basis for a variety of processes in physics, including the production of x-rays and the scattering of gamma radiation. In addition, the Compton Effect is used to measure the mass of the electron, which is an important part of many mathematical calculations. Compton's work was an important step in the development of modern physics and mathematics. It provided a new way of understanding the behavior of matter and energy, and opened the door for further exploration into the world of quantum mechanics.
