The Auger decay channels of the Ar 2p satellite states have been investigated using a multielectron coincidence technique, using a magnetic bottle time-of-flight electron spectrometer. For the Ar +(2p -13p -1np) satellite states the 2p hole is filled first, while for the Ar +(2p -13s -14s) satellite states the 3s hole is filled first with leading to Ar2 +(2p -13p -1) states, which subsequently undergo an Auger decay leading to the filling of the 2p hole.
