class EMInverseComptonScattering : public Module

Inverse Compton scattering of electrons with background photons.

This module simulates inverse Compton scattering of electrons with background photons for several photon fields. The upscattered photons are optionally created as secondary particles (default = false). The module limits the propagation step size to a fraction of the mean free path (default = 0.1).

Public Functions

EMInverseComptonScattering(PhotonField photonField = CMB, bool havePhotons = false, double limit = 0.1)

Parameters
  • photonField: target photon background
  • havePhotons: switch to create secondary photon
  • limit: step size limit as fraction of mean free path
