Additional recommended knowledge
Atoms can autoionize when the two outer electrons are both excited and, through electrostatic interactions, one of the electrons is ejected, ionizing the atom.
For an example of molecular autoionization, see self-ionization of water.
Autoionizing states are resonances.
