    u must b knowing that atom consist of nucleus and electrons revolving around it in different shells.suppose now if we somehow takeout (eject or capture)the electron from the inner most shell(k-shell)then a vacancy will be created therein the k-shell.this vacancy is filled by electron jumping from the higher shell(l-shell)and the energy difference between the two shells is released in the form of x-ray.sometimes this x-ray energy which has to be emitted is not emitted rather is absorbed by electron in higher shell resulting in emission of electon from that shell.electon thus emitted is called auger electron and the process is called auger process.
