Among the X-rays emitted in collisions between slow fully stripped ions with solids, a structure well above the limit of the Lyman series is observed. For Ne10+ ions this spectral feature has an average energy of 1.8 keV and thus evidently results from the deexcitation of two K shell vacancies via a two electron 2s2p→1s2 transition with the emission of a single photon.
