Abstract: Inverse compton (IC) scattering of lower frequency photons by relativistic electrons was used as a method for the production of high-energy gamma-rays in an accreting neutron stars. A spectrum function is derived.Based on which we obtained two new results. First there is a maximum scattered photon energy for a given resonant scattering which depends on both the incident electron energy and the magnetic field, but is independent of the incident photon energy. It is also found that the common upper limit of the scattered photon energy is the highest scattered photon energy for any given incident photon and electron energy. Thus this may have physical implications for Gamma-ray production.
