    • Abstract

       

      TheL-shell internal excitation accompanyingL-capture has been treated relativistically by the use of hydrogenic wave functions. Numerical calculations for the nuclides37Ar,55Fe,77Ge,131Cs,157Tb,165Er,179Ta and193Pt have been performed for the first-time. The present calculations show that doubleLi-hole production probability decreases with increasing atomic number and it is almost independent of transition energy for a particular shell. Possible experiments to detect this phenomenon in atoms for whichK-K processes are energetically forbidden are discussed briefly.
