Abstract
Hollow atoms are characterized by a large number of vacant inner shells and electrons occupying the outer shells. These "exotic" atomic species are formed in collision processes between highly-charged ions and several types of targets. The scope of the present contribution is to examine the decay properties of hollow atom states populated in collision with atoms, molecules, solid surfaces and clusters.
