Title: Periodic Anisotropy Fluctuations in Quasimolecular X-Ray Emission

Abstract

We have found striking periodic intensity fluctuations in the anisotropy of noncharacteristic x-ray radiation emitted in Ca-Ca, Fe-Fe, and Ni-Ni collisions. We show that the properties of this new effect can be interpreted as quasimolecular transitions in a rotating two-center system.
