The giant radiation damage imparted to single-crystalline silicon by the impact of Re2(CO)2+ at 140 keV is studied by conventional and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Evidence for damage produced by the correlated motion of the atoms initially forming the molecular ion is presented.
