Resonant Auger spectroscopy at the L2,3 shake-up thresholds as a probe of electron correlation effects in nickel
1998 (English)In: Physical Review B. Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, ISSN 1098-0121, E-ISSN 1550-235X, Vol. 58, 3677-3681 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The excitation energy dependence of the three-hole satellites in the L3-M45M45 and L2-M45M45 Auger spectra of nickel metal has been measured using synchrotron radiation. The satellite behavior in the nonradiative emission spectra at the L3 and L2 thresholds is compared and the influence of the Coster-Kronig channel explored. The three-hole satellite intensity at the L3 Auger emission line reveals a peak structure at 5 eV above the L3 threshold attributed to resonant processes at the 2p53d9 shake-up threshold. This is discussed in connection with the 6-eV feature in the x-ray-absorption spectrum.
