Relaxation of induced Compton scattering when a radiation flux propagates in a gas

  • Yu. I. Lysikov


The relaxation process by which the efficiency of induced Compton scattering is established is studied for the case when a powerful radiation flux is incident on an electron gas occupying a region of space. The temperature dependence of the scattering efficiency results in the scattering efficiency falling as time from the commencement of propagation increases. Possible manifestations of this effect in astrophysical applications are discussed.
