The widths of Kα1 and Kα2 x rays in Eu, Tm, and Ta have been measured to an accuracy of (2-4)% with a high-resolution spectrometer by means of third- and fourth-order diffraction from the (111) crystalline planes of a bent silicon crystal. The measured values confirm the results from calculations of the radiative, Auger, and Coster-Kronig widths. Possible effects from hyperfine interaction, Coulomb exchange interaction, and chemical shift are discussed.
