Synchrotron Self-Compton

(SSC)
(charged particle cloud scattering its own synchrotron-produced photons)

Synchrotron Self-Compton (SSC) is scattering of Synchrotron Radiation by the particles producing the radiation. The scattering is Inverse Compton Scattering in which the particle transfers energy to the photon, increasing the photon's Frequency and energy and decreasing its Wavelength.
