The numerical simulations of Cu Kα and Cu Kβ fluorescence lines induced by Rh X-ray tube and by monoenergetic radiation have been presented. The copper Kβ/Kα intensity ratios for pure elements as well as for Ag–Cu alloys have been modeled. The results obtained by use of the FLUKA code, based on the Monte-Carlo approach, have been compared to available experimental and theoretical values. A visible relationship was found between the simulated Kβ/Kα intensity ratios and the copper content of the Ag–Cu alloy: as the Cu content increases, the Kβ/Kα coefficient decreases. The results can play role in elemental material analysis, especially in archaeometry. View Full-Text
