Abstract

We present resonant inelastic x-ray scattering calculations that realistically incorporate intermediate-state electron-core hole interactions and final-state electron-valence hole interactions. Intermediate-state interactions primarily affect the total fluorescence yield, whereas final-state interactions can change the relative strengths of spectral emission features. This is especially true in systems with strong valence-hole exciton effects. We also consider non-resonant excitation of core-electrons. This work considers resonant scattering from B is electrons in cubic boron nitride (cBN) and hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) and non-resonant scattering from Mg and O ls electrons in MgO, and compares theoretical results to experiment.
