Test of internal-conversion theory with precise γ- and X-ray spectroscopy Conference Paper uri icon


  • Precise measurements of K-shell internal conversion coefficients (ICCs) are being used to determine the best method for calculating these coefficients. A recent result for the M4 transition from 193Irm has been refined, demonstrating conclusively that the atomic vacancy created by the ejected electron must be properly accounted for in the calculation of ICCs. Measurements of additional cases are discussed.
