The L X-ray spectrum from Cl7+ → Cl2 collisions at 40 MeV is presented. The large number of lines observed are generally found to be consistent with calculations of X-ray transition energies from the "unit flourescence yield configuration", 1s22s22pn3s1. The calculations indicate large X-ray energy splittings for transitions from different multiplet states. The assumption of statistical population of the multiplets is found to be consistent with the intensities of the observed lines.
