We report observations of the interatomic Coulombic decay (ICD) and electron-transfer-mediated decay (ETMD) from the triply charged states in Ne2 and NeAr dimers. The ICD processes leading to fragmentation of Ne3+-Ne into Ne3+-Ne+ and Ne3+-Ar into Ne3+-Ar+, and ETMD processes leading to fragmentation of Ne3+-Ne into Ne2+-Ne2+ are unambiguously identified by electron–ion-ion coincidence spectroscopy in which the kinetic energy of the ICD or ETMD electron and the kinetic energy release between the two fragment ions are measured in coincidence.
