Dissociation of the singly ionized CO2+ ion has been investigated in an intense ultrafast (55 fs) laser field, by employing an intensity selective scan technique and comparing the signals from linearly and circularly polarized pulses. Non-sequential contributions have been observed unambiguously for the first time, highlighting the role of rescattering in the dissociative process.
