Hi Alan,

yes Reighley scattering can be as big as 5% of the total electromagnetic cross-section, providing the photon with a slight change in direction before it is undergoes photo-effect. For all use-cases supported, this effect is of no relevance, but would lead to performance penalties. It is hence not included.

Do you know of a use-case involving hadronic physics, where it actually matters ?

With kind regards,

Hans-Peter.
