Auger electron spectra recorded in coincidence with two Ar+ ions produced from Ar22 + suggest that the bound one-site two-hole state, Ar2+(3p-2)-Ar, decays further only via radiative charge transfer to the dissociative two-site two-hole states Ar+(3p-1)-Ar+(3p-1). The measured kinetic energy release of Ar22 + agrees well with the theoretical estimate based on this process.
