• Chemical effect on the K shell fluorescence yield of Fe, Mn, Co, Cr and Cu compounds

Chemical effects on the K shell fluorescence yields of Fe, Mn, Co, Cr and Cu compounds were investigated. Samples were excited using 59.5 keV energy photons from a241 Am radioisotope source. K X-rays emitted by samples were counted by a Si(Li) detector with a resolution 160 eV at 5.9 keV. Chemical effects on the K shell fluorescence yields (ωk) for Fe, Mn, Co, Cr and Cu compounds were observed. The values are compared with theoretical, semiempirical fit and experimental ones for the pure elements.

• Measurement of mass attenuation coefficients in some Cr, Co and Fe compounds around the absorption edge and the validity of the mixture rule

The total mass attenuation coefficients for elements Cr, Co and Fe and compounds CrCl2, CrCl3, Cr2(SO4)$_{3}𝐾_{2}$SO4·24H2O, CoO, CoCl2, Co(CH3COO)2, FePO4, FeCl3·6H2O, Fe(SO4)2NH4·12H2O were measured at different energies between 4.508 and 14.142 keV using secondary excitation method. Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Br, Rb, Sr were chosen as secondary exciters. 59.5 keV 𝛾-rays emitted from a 241Am annular source were used to excite a secondary exciter and K$_{\alpha}$ (K-L3, L2) lines emitted by the secondary exciter were counted by a Si(Li) detector with a resolution of 160 eV at 5.9 keV. It was observed that mixture rule method is not a suitable method for determination of the mass attenuation coefficients of compounds, especially at an energy that is near the absorption edge. The obtained values were compared with theoretical values.
