The angular anisotropy of Auger electrons from cascade Auger transitions induced by photoexcitation of the 3d5/2-15p resonance in Kr is reported. In contrast to the previously reported measurements for Ne and Ar, a large anisotropy is observed for the first-step spectator transitions 3d5/2-15p → 4s-14p-15p and 3d5/2-15p → 4s-25p while the second-step participator transitions are almost isotropic. These findings are qualitatively explained by consideration of the alignment transfer via the first-step spectator Auger transitions.
