A way of exciting nuclei using reverse conversion is studied. Nuclear excitation occurs due to resonance absorption of the kinetic energy of the recombining electron and its binding energy in the final state. Calculations of triggering cross sections are made using reverse conversion of the energy of ions of isomeric nucleus 129mSb on a bare nucleus and lithium-like ions. Experiments to study this process are performed in the storage rings of the GSI in Darmstadt and the IMP in Lanzhou.
