Molecular-frame angular distributions (MFADs) of resonant and non-resonant ("normal") Auger electrons were determined using angle-resolved electron-ion coincidence spectroscopy. Here, we concentrate on the MFADs of normal N2 KVV Auger electrons. We conclude that their MFADs are independent of both photon energy and light polarization direction, thus confirming that the two-step model is a good approximation. All threshold and shape-resonance phenomena can be attributed to the absorption process and are irrelevant for the Auger decay in the molecular frame. Distinct differences in the MFADs are found as a function of the Auger final state.
