Description: We determine the Compton effect from the Volkov solution of the Dirac equation for a process in medium with the index of refraction n. Volkov solution involves the mass shift, or, the mass renormalization of an electron. We determine the modified Compton formula for the considered physical situation. The index of refraction causes that the wave lengths of the scattered photons are shorter for some angles than the wave lengths of the original photons. This is anomalous Compton effect.
