The emission of X-rays in Ka and KLL Auger energy regions were analyzed for transition metals by using energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) system. To acquire more information in this energy region, the semi-empirical determination of Ka, Auger line-widths and the L sub-shell level widths were performed. Since K shell is a core shell for transition metals and it is not easily be affected by valence shell electronic distributions, K shell fluorescence yields were used for the semi-empirical determinations. In the experiment, elemental form of transition metals were excited by 59.5 keV g-rays from 241Am annular source and the emitted  X-ray photons were counted by Ultra-LEGe detector with a resolution of 150 eV at 5.9 keV. The obtained results were compared with the other studies in the literature
