KLV Auger spectra of Al and Si were measured with the electron-beam excitation method. A new semi-empirical method for calculating the kinetic energies of these spectra originated from inner and valence shells is proposed. In this method, the measured energy of a Kβ X-ray satellite emitted from a K1L1 doubly ionized state and a calculated Hartree-Fock-Slater type potential acting between inner shells, i.e. K and L shells, for an isolated atom were used. The absolute kinetic energies of the Al and Si KLV Auger spectra were simply but accurately estimated without any complicated multiplet calculations involving the interaction potential between the L and V shells.
