© 2018 American Physical Society. Single, double, and triple ionization of the C+ ion by a single photon have been investigated in the energy range 286 to 326 eV around the K-shell single-ionization threshold at an unprecedented level of detail. At energy resolutions as low as 12 meV, corresponding to a resolving power of 24 000, natural linewidths of the most prominent resonances could be determined. From the measurement of absolute cross sections, oscillator strengths, Einstein coefficients, multielectron Auger decay rates, and other transition parameters of the main K-shell excitation and decay processes are derived. The cross sections are compared to results of previous theoretical calculations. Mixed levels of agreement are found despite the relatively simple atomic structure of the C+ ion with only five electrons. This paper is a followup to a previous Letter [A. Müller, Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 013002 (2015)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.114.013002].
