The energies and intensities of KL 2→L 3 X-ray satellite multiplet lines are determined from high-resolution measurements of metallic samples. The spectra are interpreted in terms of six multiplet transitions arising from 1s -12p -2→ 2p -3 transitions. Lines including 2s holes are shown to be weak. The relative intensities of the electron excited KL 2 multiplets show marked deviations from the statistical population of initial states in contrast to the KL multiplets.
