Determination of K shell XRF parameters and K to L shell vacancy transfer probabilities of ferromagnetic 3d transition metals
In this study, K shell X-ray fluorescence cross-sections (?K?, ?K? and ?K), K shell fluorescence yields (?K) and K to L shell vacancy transfer probabilities (?KL) of ferromagnetic 3d transition metals (Fe, Co, Ni) were investigated to understand how the relationship between ferromagnetism and these values changes with atomic number by using energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) technique. The all obtained experimental and theoretical results were comparatively given as a function of the atomic number. It was clearly observed that all of the investigated parameters depend on the atomic number and the ferromagnetism state of the atom. © 2017 Author(s).
