Dissociation of the 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. Nonsequential contributions have been observed, highlighting the role of rescattering in the dissociative process.
