The distortion effects of the post-collision interaction on argon L2,3M2,3M2,3 Auger-electron lineshapes have been calculated for 300 eV, 500 eV and 2 keV electron impact inner-shell ionization. The calculations were based on the model of Kuchiev and Sheinerman (Kuchiev M Yu and Sheinerman S A 1987 Sov. Phys.-Tech. Phys. 32 879) applying our cross section data for secondary electrons, determined by a classical trajectory Monte Carlo method and in addition a continuum distorted wave method for 2 keV. The asymmetry parameters of the calculated peak shapes have been examined as a function of the projectile energy and the Auger emission angle and for some cases compared with our previous experimental results.
