Differential cross sections for elastic and Raman scattering of photons from 232Th and 238U targets were measured. Eight photon energies in the range 7.9-11.4 MeV were used and were obtained from thermal neutron capture in Fe, Cr, Cu and Ni. The angular distribution of the elastic and Raman scattered radiation from 232Th was measured. The results are compared with calculations of the simple rotator model and the dynamical collective model of the giant dipole resonance after incorporating the effect of Delbruck scattering.
