Abstract

In a recent article, Kouzakov suggested that experimental resolution effects can be responsible for discrepancies between measured and calculated fully differential cross sections for the ionization of helium by fast C6+ impact. They further asserted that projectile-coherence effects have no influence on the measured cross sections. In this Comment, we reiterate that the experimental resolution can only explain part of the discrepancies. Furthermore, we note that the conclusion regarding the role of projectile coherence neglects potential interference between first- and higher-order transition amplitudes.
