compLS: Comptonization, Lamb & Sanford

A Comptonization spectrum after Lamb and Sanford, 1979, MNRAS, 288, 555. This model calculates the self-Comptonization of a bremsstrahlung emission from an optically thick spherical plasma cloud with a given optical depth and temperature. It was popular for Sco X-1.

par1 temperature in keV
par2 optical depth
norm normalization #39402#>
