A new apparatus which utilizes double translational energy spectroscopy (DTES) is described. This allows studies of state-selective electron capture by multiply charged ions in well defined states. This approach avoids the ambiguities inherent in the results of many previous measurements carried out with beams containing metastable ions. The considerable potential of DTES has been illustrated by measurements of one-electron capture by C2+ ions in collision with Ar at 4keV.
