X-ray Raman and Compton scattering spectra from compounds consisting of low-Z elements have been measured over a wide range of momentum and energy transfer. An anisotropy study on BN single crystal shows that X-ray Raman spectroscopy is useful in studies of excited electronic states and is complementary to soft X-ray K absorption spectroscopy. Generalized oscillator strengh can also be determined by inelastic X-ray scattering spectra due to L electrons, and applications for various studies are discussed.
