Abstract

The experimental distribution of Kα X-ray satellite yield from 46Pd atoms bombarded with oxygen ions at 5.4 MeV/u energy (i.e. closely matching the target L-shell electron velocity) shows significant deviations from the binomial distribution. The deviations can be accounted for by assuming that the L-shell ionization is due to two uncorrelated processes: the direct ionization by impact and the electron capture from the L-shell of the target atom to the K-shell of the projectile, both occurring at nearly central collissions. The corresponding probability values are obtained using simple statistical considerations.
