Abstract: We report the measurements of population partitions and state-specific kinetic energy distributions of ground and metastable state Sr, Co and Ni atoms ejected during Ar+ ion-beam sputtering of clean polycrystalline targets. To obtain this information we use a very sensitive and generally applicable method based on resonance laser ionization mass spectrometry. The experimental results show a strong dependence on the correspondence of the electronic configuration of the atomic state with the bulk electronic structure and are discussed in view of resonant electron transfer as a mechanism for the emission of metal atoms in excited states.
