Abstract

Using the five-electron K-shell vacancy 1s2s(2)2p(2) configuration as an example, we show that the fluorescence yields of the eight LSJ states of the configuration exhibit a dramatic dependence on LSJ. These results demonstrate that, in general, configuration-average fluorescence data are inappropriate for astrophysical modeling.
