With the available photon energy resolution of 20,000 it is a challenge to reach a similar resolution for detection of electron pairs formed at threshold. A resolution down to 5 meV was observed for Ar++ while for other dications only a 10-15 meV resolution was observed. Nevertheless, vibrational levels of the 3Sg- state of CO2++ are clearly resolved.
