If an incident photon of a wavelength A has scattered with an angle e after it collides with an electron in an atom, what is the shift in its wave length?

Consider a flat, thin, perfectly reflective square mirror of mass m lying on edge on a frictionless, horizontal surface that is met by an electromagnetic wave with Poynting vector parallel to the normal to the square. Suppose the EM wave recoils from the square with the same outgoing momentum (and thus energy). That is, suppose the incoming wave has momentum p and recoils with momentum -p. To conserve momentum, the square recoils with momentum 2p, and thus has kinetic energy $\frac{2{p}^{2}}{m}$. Where did the kinetic energy of the square come from?

Everybody knows that all physics systems absorb light quanta, any material thing can absorb light quanta. But the reverse question is , can light absorb energy and therefore changes its frequency? If not, please give me some fundamentals or equations that prohibit this from happening.
