Abstract

Over the last decade our knowledge on atomic structure of superheavy qua-simolecules in the range 110 ≤ Ztot ≤ 188 has increased considerably1−26 Heavy ion collisions, in which superheavy quasimolecules are formed for a short period of time, offer us a unique tool to investigate the electronic structure of ultra-high Z-systems, which are not otherwise accessible to experiment. Comparison of K-vacancy formation, δ-electron and positron emission with available experimental data suggests the validity of the qua-simolecular picture, which will be taken as the theoretical framework of our calculations.
