The aim of the project is to study atomic transitions with more participating electrons, and thus indirectly the interaction among the electrons. Basic work is performed by the electron spectrometer of our own construction, which is primarily intended for the observation of processes in gas targets bombarded by electrons. The spectrometer consists of a 30-degree plan-parallel analyzer and a rectangular lens, which is optimal geometry for the interaction of an electron beam with the gas target. The investigations under way include studies of the Auger satellites and hipersatellites in neon atoms, the post-collision interaction in the Auger spectra, and the coincidence processes during sequential decays. Experimentally, the onset of Auger satellites and hypersatellites in the vicinity of the threshold was studied. After calculating the radiation widths and branching ratios, the cross sections for the double-ionized states were determined and compared to the calculated values obtained by the binary encounter model. The shape of the diagram lines modified by the post-collision-interaction, was investigated. The many-electron effects in the atom were also studied for the inner shell ionization by light ions, where the atomic states are heavily distorted by the Coulomb interaction with the projectile.
