A theoretical expression is obtained for the energy distributions of sputtered dimers. The model assumes recombination of neighbouring atoms sputtered according their individual single particle energy distribution functions. A comparison with the experimental results for K2 and KI sputtered from polycrystalline K and KI surfaces, respectively, shows a good agreement.
