resonance line

in X-ray spectroscopy
Also contains definition of: resonance emission
The radiative decay of an excitation level may proceed to the neutral @[email protected] and would thus occur at the same energy as the corresponding line in the @[email protected] Such a line is called a @[email protected] line and the process is called resonance emission.
