In this study, interpolations (empirical and semi-empirical) of L sub-shell fluorescence yield and L shell Coster-Kronig transition probability values and the measured L X-ray production cross-sections, intensity ratios and L sub-shell fluorescence yield values of elements have been performed in the range of 50 <= Z <= 92. In this experimental setup, two sources (50 mCi Fe-55 and 50 mCi Am-241) were used. L X-rays emitted by samples were counted by an Ultra-LEGe detector with a resolution of 150 eV at 5.9 key.
