Intershell KL-LLL trielectronic recombination (TR) in highly charged ions, where a K-shell and a L-shell electron are simultaneously excited by the capture of a free one, was studied at electron beam ion traps. In our experiments and accompanying MCDF calculations, we show that these higher-order contributions to the total recombination yield grow to an unexpected strength in light and mid-heavy ions. The experimental results of TR measurements in Ar, Fe and Kr allow for the deduction of a scaling law for the TR strength in dependence of Z. In C-like ions with Z ≤ 20, TR even dominates over the first-order dielectronic process (DR) [1]. The strong sensitivity of the TR process to eletron-electron interaction gives new experimental access to the study of inner-atomic electron correlation effects. Therefore, the importance of Breit interaction becomes measurable already for lighter ions around Fe (Z=26) focussing on TR resonances. Beside this, considering the strong selection rules for TR, the measurements can be used as a proof for the importance of configuration interaction. We present theoretical considerations using the flexible atomic code as well as experimental investigations of C-like TR in iron.
