CUEVAS, R.  and  QUEIJEIRO, A.. Thomson scattering revisited. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2002, vol.48, n.3, pp.271-276. ISSN 0035-001X.

We review Thomson scattering, as the low energy limit of Compton scattering, for target particles of spin 0, 1/2, 1, and 3/2 . We show how, at the scattering amplitude level, Thomson result emerges; then, the computation of the cross section is quite simple.

Keywords : Scattering; photons; particle spin.
