FY $L_{2,3}M_{1}$

In Fluoressence Yield spectroscopy one can focus on different decay channels. Each of them will yield a different spectrum. For a $2p$ to $3d$ excitation one can look at the $3s$ to $2p$ decay. The edge measured is thus the $L_{2,3}M_{1}$ edge.

The corresponding input file is:

FY_L23M1.Quanty
-- in this example we calculate the fluorescence yield spectra for the L23M1 edge.
-- i.e. we make an 2p to 3d excitation followed by a 3s to 2p decay. 
 
-- we minimize the output by setting the verbosity to 0
Verbosity(0)
