Abstract
The L-subshell fluorescence yields , ωLi, have been determined for the first time for various light and medium heavy elements with 28≤Z≤47. The method applied is based on the subshell ionization by relativistic electron impact with an electron energy of Eo= 50 keV and the detection of characteristic X rays by means of a high resolution crystal spectrometer calibrated absolutely with respect to its transmission and reflectivity. The number of initial L vacancies and its subshell distribution as well as the normalized X-ray transition probabilities , the Coster-Kronig yields and the K-shell Auger transition rates are taken from theory. The results obtained for ωLi yield values that are in agreement for all three subshells with the predictions of a widely used semi-empirical formula and for ωL2 and ωL3 also with the theoretical calculation. The values of ωL1, however, exceed the theory systematically.
