Measurement of P(K)omega(K) in the decay of 65Zn and the K-shell fluorescence yield of copper
The product of the K-capture probability P(K) and the K-shell fluorescence yield omega(K) of copper in the decay of Zn was measured to be 0.398 +/- 0.002. A gas-flow proportional counter was used to measure the X-rays, and a NaI(Tl) detector to measure the gamma-rays. P(K)omega(K) was derived from the coincidences between X- and gamma-rays. From the measured value of P(K)omega(K) and the theoretical K-capture probability P(K) = 0.880 +/- 0.002, the K-shell fluorescence yield omega(K) = 0.452 +/- 0.003 for copper is deduced.
