Quantum Defect theory is a well established theoretical concept in modern spectroscopy that was found particularly powerful in the study of Rydberg states and photoionization of various atomic and molecular species. We show that this approach can also be useful in electron impact ionization problems where state of the art theoretical methods are presently restricted mostly to simple atomic targets. We found that this approach leads to significant improvements over previous calculations for the well documented case of the ionization of argon in equal energy sharing geometry.
