The authors regret that the unit of the lifetimes in Table 4 of the original paper is wrong. It should read “ps” instead of “fs”. The version of Table 4 given below shows this correctly. Consequently, the lifetimes are three orders of magnitude larger than originally stated. Note that the decay widths are correct throughout the original article. The overall interpretation of the article is unchanged since the known competing relaxation mechanism is the photon emission of Ar3s−1, with a lifetime of 4.684 ± 0.019 ns [1]. Therefore, the ETMD3 process is still two to three orders of magnitude faster than the radiative lifetime of argon and can therefore be expected to be the more likely process. However, other competing relaxation mechanisms like electron scattering might be more competitive in the timescale of picoseconds. All other discussions were based on relative lifetimes and are therefore unaffected by the error. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
