In this study K-beta/K-alpha (K-beta /K-alpha) intensity ratios of the elements scandium (Sc), vanadium (V), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), bromine (Br), yttrium (Y), zirconium (Zr), and niobium (Nb) have been measured at three azimuthal scattering angles (+30 degrees, 0 degrees, and -30 degrees) for two fixed polar scattering angles (85 degrees and 135 degrees). The elements were excited by 59.54 keV gamma photons emitted from 100 mCiAm(241) point source. The obtained experimental values were compared with the theoretical values presented in the literature. It is observed that K-beta/K-alpha intensity ratios of the investigated elements do not depend on azimuthal angles at fixed polar angles.
