Auger electrons of beam-foil excited C-projectiles and C-fragments of Coulomb exploding molecular CO-projectiles at 83 keV/u yield information on the excitation mechanisms and the interaction with the solid. A numerical procedure is developed to calculate the mean energy of the Coulomb explosion, the charge states of the fragment ions and their angular straggling behaviour inside the solid. The calculated results are compared with experimental data. From a detailed line shape calculation the magnitude of directional effects induced by the Wake-potential can be predicted.
