Title: Measurements of cross sections and resonance structures following electron-impact excitation/ionization of Na-like Kr and Xe

We report high-resolution measurements of electron impact excitation and ionization cross sections for the Na-like ions Kr{sup 25+} and Xe{sup 43+}. Ions with ionization states centered on the Na-like configurations were produced in an electron beam ion trap (EBIT) using electrons with energies below the L shell ionization thresholds. The Na-like ions were exposed to an electron beam with an energy between 3 and 7 keV. The Na- and Ne-like ions were then extracted and their intensities measured as a function of the electron beam energy. Theoretical ionization cross sections were calculated using relativistic distorted wave methods. Complex resonance structures that appear in the computed cross sections are observed in the experimental results. These results are the first experimental observation of resonant-excitation-double-autoionization (REDA) in highly charged high-Z ions.
