Electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) study of the neon valence satellites is reported. The experiments were performed at impact energies of 1250, 1450 and 1670 eV using a multichannel spectrometer that features high sensitivity. Binding energy spectra up to 100 eV and momentum profiles for the 2p -1 and 2s-1 primary transitions as well as the satellites are presented. The results are used to examine impact energy dependence of the relative intensities and shapes of the satellite momentum profiles. The results are also used to determine symmetries and spectroscopic factors of the satellites, and are compared with the previous experiments by EMS and photoelectron spectroscopy and sophisticated theoretical calculations. The present study has largely resolved controversies in the previous studies.
