Comparison of techniques for the determination of the L2-L3X Coster-Kronig transition probability


Journal Article (Review)

The value of the Coster-Kronig transition probability for Z=73 has been determined by eight variations of the K-L x-ray coincidence technique. The effect of a correction for unwanted Lη-Kα2 coincidence events in the Lα-K coincidence spectrum is discussed. The value reported for the Coster-Kronig transition probability at Z=73, f23=0.153±0.002, is a weighted average of measurements not involving this correction. This value is in excellent agreement with previous measurements but deviates significantly from theoretical predictions. © 1975 The American Physical Society.
