Abstract

Abstract The interaction of highly charged ions with metal surfaces causes the emission of secondary electrons. Energy spectra of the emitted electrons reveal, for sufficiently high charge states of the projectile, the occurence of Auger deexcitation projectile inner shell vacancies brought into the interaction as well inter-atomic charge exchange processes leading to the emission of target Auger electrons.
