Abstract

Auger photoelectron coincidence spectroscopy has been used to study the decay of Ni 2p and 2P3/2 holes to three-valence band holes in the final state of the Ni L2,3 VV Auger process. This was achieved by fixing one analyzer at the position of the 3-hole contribution to the Ni L3 VV line of an Ni80%Fe20% alloy and scanning the other analyzer over the Ni 2P3/2 and 2P1/2 photoelectron lines. With this single experiment, we have been able to confirm that the 3-hole final state satellite has contributions from both the L2L3 V Coster-Kronig and L3 V shake-up/shake-off processes. We present an estimate of the relative contribution of each process.
