Appl Radiat Isot. 2015 Oct;104:43-8. doi: 10.1016/j.apradiso.2015.06.023. Epub 2015 Jun 20.

Abstract

The L shell X-ray intensity ratios Li/Lα (i=l, β and γ), the production cross-sections σ(Li) (i=l, α, β and γ) and the L3 subshell fluorescence yields ω(L3) have been investigated for the element Pb in the phthalocyanine complexes. The measurements have been performed using an (241)Am annular radioactive source and an Ultra-LEGe detector with a resolution of 150 eV at 5.9 keV. The experimental values have been compared with the theoretical values of pure Pb element.
