For Cl13+ bombardment the K X-ray transition from the metastable 4P state in Li-Like Ne is clearly resolved from an overlapping Be-like line. Previously measured K-shell fluorescence yields are corrected for this overlap. The detected rate of metastable to prompt X-ray emission from Li-like Ne is observed to vary with projectile energy.
