An error in the paper by Tamenori et al. [(2011), J. Synchrotron Rad. 18, 747–752] is corrected.

In the second paragraph of §3.2 of Tamenori et al. (2011[Tamenori, Y., Morita, M. & Nakamura, T. (2011). J. Synchrotron Rad. 18, 747-752.]), we had provided incorrect fluorescence decay probability values for Mn L23-shell ionization (0.0063) and O K-shell ionization (0.05). The correct fluorescence decay probability value of Mn L23-shell ionization is 0.005 and that of O K-shell ionization is 0.0083 (Krause, 1979[Krause, M. O. (1979). J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data, 8, 307-327.]). Consequently, we had overestimated the difference between the fluorescence decay probabilities of Mn L23-shell and O K-shell ionization.

Based on the correct fluorescence decay probability values, the Mn L23-shell ionization value is about 60% of the O K-shell ionization value. This ratio supports a qualitative interpretation of the dip structure that appeared in the NEXAFS spectra of a MnO crystal [Fig. 3 of Tamenoriet al. (2011[Tamenori, Y., Morita, M. & Nakamura, T. (2011). J. Synchrotron Rad. 18, 747-752.])]. Furthermore, the model proposed in the original paper was also corroborated by two-dimensional fluorescence measurement results, which have been presented in the last paragraph of §3.2. Therefore, the overall conclusions of the original paper remain unchanged.

We thank Professor Toshiaki Ohta of Ritsumeikan University for drawing our attention to this error.
