We perform convergent close-coupling calculations of double photoionization (DPI) of the K-shell of alkaline-earth metal atoms (Be, Mg, and Ca) from the threshold to the nonrelativistic limit of infinite photon energy. Theoretical double-to-single photoionization cross-section ratios for Mg and Ca are compared with experimental values derived from high-resolution x-ray spectra following the...

This paper reports on the investigation of the double K-shell ionization of metallic aluminum induced by photon and electron impact. The experimental method consisted to measure the Kα hypersatellite spectra resulting from the radiative decay of double 1s vacancy states by means of high-resolution x-ray spectroscopy using a Bragg-type von Hamos crystal spectrometer....
