    F Kα satellite intensity distributions induced by He+ impacts were successfully explained, with the aid of those induced by photon impacts, by the shake-off and the resonant orbital rearrangement together with the direct coulomb interaction, molecular orbital formation, the energy loss of projectiles and the self-absorption of emitted X-rays. Here photon-induced F Kα spectra were emitted from a series of alkali and alkaline-earth fluorides, i.e., NaF, KF, RbF and CsF, and MgF2, CaF2, SrF2 and BaF2. This kind of semi-empirical calculation suggests that significant change in fine structures on the F Kα satellites is useful to specify bonding characteristics of these fluorides.
