High-resolution (e,2e) energy spectra are presented which enable the isolation of interference effects between J=0,1,2 multipoles in electron-impact ionization of cadmium. It is found that both resonant and nonresonant processes are important. Relative magnitudes and phases of ionization amplitudes are obtained which disagree with plane-wave Born approximation calculations.
