Inelastic and Elastic Scattering
 
Inelastic scattering is a fundamental scattering process in which the kinetic energy of an incident particle is not conserved (in contrast to elastic scattering). In an inelastic scattering process, some of the energy of the incident particle is lost or gained.
 
In inelastic scattering the electronic state of the system is changed, the electron is excited or ionised.
In elastic scattering the electronic state of the system is not changed; the recoil is to the entire system.
 
Inelastic scattering is seen in the interaction between an electron and a photon and is also common in molecular collisions.
 
When a photon is the incident particle, the inelastic scattering process is called Raman scattering.
