Abstract

Abstract The shifts of the electronic K X-rays in muonic atoms are calculated and compared with the recent experimental data. The shifts may be caused either by the incomplete screening of the nuclear charge by the muon, or by additional electronic vacancies produced by preceding Auger transitions. The first mechanism explains the experiment well. The good agreement between the measured and calculated shifts for K α and K β X-rays means that the electron L shell is not strongly depleted when the muon has reached orbits with n = 6 to 9.
