The latter three measure the electrons or photons emitted after a core electron is excited or ionized and all three modes yield spectra that are closely proportional to the actual absorption spectrum.
This def-TZVP basis consists of the Stuttgart--Dresden pseudopotentials [10,30,31], which replaced 28 core electrons (46 in the case of La) with the corresponding def-TZVP basis sets on lanthanoids and the TZVP basis [32] on other atoms.
