Abstract: We report an observation of energy-pooling collisions in a rare-earth-metal atomic element (Yb). The collisional process populates atomic states having different electronic configurations. Population transfer from closed inner-shell states to open ones is put in evidence, and its rate is comparable to the other observed collisional processes.
