In this work, the effects caused by different chemical combination and external magnetic field in several copper and zinc compounds (Cu, CuBr, Cu2O, CuI, CuCl, Cu2Te, Cu5Si, CuSO4, CuSeO4.5H2O, CuCl2, Cu(NO3)2, CuS, CuSe, CuF2, CuF2.3H2O, CuBr2, Cu(ClO4)2.6H2O, Zn, ZnSO4.5H2O, Zn(C2H3O2)2, ZnF2, Zn(NO3)2.6H2O, ZnO, ZnS, ZnSe, ZnTe and ZnF2.4H2O) were studied using a Si(Li) detector. The samples were excited by 22.69 keV X-rays from 109Cd point radioactive source of strength 10 mCi in the external magnetic field of intensities 0.6 T and 1.2 T. The shift, asymmetry, FWHM and Kβ/Kα intensity ratio values were determined. For B = 0, the present experimental results were compared with the experimental and theoretical data in literature. The results have shown that the atomic parameters such as energy shifts, asymmetry indices, FWHM and Kβ/Kα intensity ratios can change when irradiation is conducted in a magnetic field.
