Abstract

We identified interatomic Coulombic decay (ICD) channels in argon dimers after spectator-type resonant Auger decay 2p-13d→3p -23d,4d in one of the atoms, using momentum-resolved electron-ion-ion coincidence. The results illustrate that the resonant core excitation is a very efficient way of producing slow electrons at a specific site, which may cause localized radiation damage. We find also that ICD rate for 3p-24d is significantly lower than that for 3p-23d.
