Leybold Equipment Set for Compton Scattering

Used for investigating how the wavelength of γ-radiation changes as a function of the scattering angle.

Energetic γ radiation from Cs-137 preparation (559 809) is scattered by an aluminum body and the energy loss is detected as a function of angle by the scintillation counter (559 901) detector output stage (559 912) and VKA box (524 058) attached to CASSY (e.g. 524 013) and displayed using CASSY Lab software(524 220).

The resulting curve of residual energy after scattering obey Compton's theory allowing the rest mass of the scattering object to be determined.

  • Source holder with collimator (10 cm x 10 cm x 8 cm)
  • Detector holder for reducing the opening angle of the scintillator (10 cm x 10 cm x 28 cm)
  • Lead shielding (10 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm)
  • Aluminum scatterer made of pure Al (10 cm x 2 cm diam.)
  • Base plate with angular scale (40 cm x 60 cm)
  • Total weight: 20 kg
