You have not stated weater you are using XRD or XRF analysis wher the crystaline structure of the sample makes a difference also the sample thickness and absorbtion factors. ',

Scattering of primary X-rays by the sample results in two processes: Coherent scattering without loss of energy and Compton scattering with a little loss of energy. As mentioned before, not all of the incident X-rays participate in the photoelectric absorption. Some of them do not reach the inner shells and thus they do not give rise to absorption. Instead, they are deflected by the atoms in two ways:
a The incident X-ray photon is deflected without loss of energy.
b The X-ray photon is deflected with a slight loss in energy and thus with an increase in wavelength.

so asuming you are going for the basic no loss in situation a you need the following.

The electron recoils under the impact and leaves the atom carrying with it some of the energy of the incident photon. Thus the primary photon is scatter ...more

Increase in wavelength means lowering the frequency., if the wavelenth of X-ray increases, the X-ray may convert into microwaves.
