Abstract | Full Text

In this study, the empirical average M shell fluorescence yields were calculated from 70Yb to 92U. These obtained values will supply more experimental data for theoretical estimations of atomic structure calculations and spectroscopic analysis which is used for material characterization.  And also, chemical effects on average M-shell fluorescence yields for Hg, Pb, and Bi compounds were determined using M X-ray production cross-sections at 5.96 keV photon energy. The samples were irradiated using a 1.85 GBq 55Fe radioactive source.  M X-rays emitted by samples were counted using a multi-channel analyzer with a Ultra-LEGe detector. The measured experimental values have been compared with theoretically and empirically (only for M-shell average fluorescence yields) calculated values of pure elements.
