In the classical theory for Thomson scattering, electron spins are not considered, and a linearly polarized incident wave remains to be linearly polarized even after it is scattered by an electron.
In Thomson scattering, the scattered photon energy is left at the same level, and an increase of the scattered photon energy is obtained in the photon-particle interaction of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect.
