A number of high resolution studies of the Ag M4,5-N4,5N4,5 Auger line shape have been reported. Despite some success in explaining the line shape some important questions as to its nature remain. An Auger photoelectron coincidence spectroscopy study of the metallic Ag M4,5-N4,5N4,5 Auger line, collected in coincidence with the 3d5/2, 3d3/2 and 3p3/2 photoelectrons, is presented. This enables a study of the electron correlation effects and complex Auger decay processes in the Auger emission of a representative 4d transition metal.
