The differential cross section measurements for elastic scattering electrons from Ar2+ and Xe2+ were presented. A crossed-beams energy loss spectrometer was used for investigating angular distributions for electron scattering from the ions at a collision energy of 16 eV. The main structure observed from the experimental data with a minimum near 80° was described by the partial waves calculation. Results showed that the second more pronounced minima for Ar2+ and Xe2+ was observed at different angles.
