    Abstract

    Auger photoelectron coincidence spectroscopy has been used to study the decay of Ni 2p1/2 and 2p3/2 holes to three-valence band holes in the final state of the Ni L2,3VV Auger process. This was achieved by fixing one analyzer at the position of the 3-hole contribution to the Ni L3VV 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 L2L3V Coster-Kronig and L3V shake-up/shake-off processes. We present an estimate of the relative contribution of each process.
