The KaX-ray production cross sections of53I,55Cs,56Ba and57La for protons between 1.5 MeV and 3.0 MeV have been measured. Moreover, the K-shell ionization cross sections of29Cu and35Br are reported. The targets are in the form of thin layers mounted on three different types of backings: nuclepore membrane filter, mylar, and thin carbon foil. The experimental results are compared with the most recent formulations of the perturbed stationary state model corrected for Coulomb deflection, relativistic and energy loss effects (ECPSSR), and of the relativistic plane wave Born approximation corrected for binding effect and Coulomb deflection (RPWBA-BC). © 1984.
