K-beta

Atomic levels involved in copper Kα and Kβ emission

K-beta emissions, similar to K-alpha emissions, result when an electron transitions to the innermost "K" shell (principal quantum number 1) from a 3p orbital of the third or "M" shell (with principal quantum number 3).

Values can be found in the X-Ray Transition Energies Database.[1]
