Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


X-ray spectra produced when 8.5 MeV amu-1 Fe, Kr and Nb ions are excited in collisions with a graphite target are reported. X-ray transitions originating in one-, two- and three-electron ions are observed and used to test the accuracy of the theoretical X-ray energy calculations. The production probabilities for Li-, He- and H-like ions were determined from the relative gamma -ray line strengths and centroid line energies.
