Post subject:  inverse Compton origin of hard X-rays

Porter et al. 2008

show that the 100 keV - 1 MeV diffuse Galactic emission observed by SPI on INTEGRAL is probably inverse Compton.
The important new ingredients are the FIR interstellar radiation field and secondary positrons/electrons.

As promised in this paper, the GALPROP parameter files are available here:
