# De-Excitation of Sulphur L-Shell Vacancies Produced in Ion-Atom Collisions in Solids

Chapter

## Abstract

The inherent difficulties in obtaining relative populations of electronic defect configurations (and charge states) are presented for a 100 keV sulphur projectile traversing through a solid. It is concluded that this type of information cannot be deduced, as yet, from x-ray spectra of sulphur projectiles. Theoretical transition energies, transition rates and fluorescence yields are presented for sulphur with single 2p and multiple M vacancies.

- [28]The definition given in eq. (11) is not correct. The fluorescence yield, averaged over the spectroscopic terms designated by L and S with a statistical population (2L + 1)(2S +1), is as follows: The multiplet fluorescence yield, ω(L,S), is the ratio of the total x-ray rate and the total decay rate for the particular state specified by L and S. The numerical results of <ω> differ significantly from the ω
_{2p}-values in tables 4 and 5. These considerations do not change the values of average extinction distances and the general arguments and conclusions presented here.Google Scholar - [29]C. P. Bhalla, D. L. Matthews and C. F. Moore, Phys. Lett. 46A, 336 (1973).ADSGoogle Scholar
