The decay curves for the delayed emission of 2p-1s and 3p-1s transitions in 40-MeV He- and H-like Ne projectiles excited by passage through a thin carbon foil have been measured. The decay curves, when compared to theoretical calculations, indicate that the l distribution is uniform in the high-n Rydberg states. Various structural features in the delayed x-ray emission spectra of 40-MeV Ne and 48-MeV Mg ions have also been examined.
