Electron-impact ionization cross sections have been determined for hydrogen like iron ions at selected electron energies between 1.45 and 4.3 times the threshold energy. The cross sections were obtained by measuring the equilibrium ionization balance in an electron beam ion trap. This ionization balance is obtained from x-ray measurements of radiative recombination into the K-shell of hydrogen-like and bare iron ions. The measured cross sections are compared with distorted-wave calculations and several semiempirical formulations.
