Abstract

Todays atomic theory allows the transition energies of atomic K X-rays to be calculated with high precision. As they have sizeable contributions from terms of fundamental importance precise experimental data in particular for the heavy elements 1,2,3) are very much in demand. In the present contribution we report an experimental and theoretical study of ratios of K X-ray energies of high Z and low Z elements. With the method used the results become independent of the absolute energy scale.
