    Hi,
    could you list the cases in which the photon behaves like a particle?
    I can think only of Compton scattering, are there many others?

    It always behaves like a particle.

    The canonical examples would be the photoelectric effect (after all, it is what Einstein got his Nobel for) and the black body spectrum.
