Collision induced X-rays are shown to be a useful tool to determine atomic numbers and yields of heavy ion fusion products. In the reaction56Fe(132Xe; xn, yp) the elements Hg, Au, and Pt are produced as primary fusion products. A resolving power Z/ΔZ of 72±7 has been obtained. Improvements and restrictions of the method are discussed.
