The alignment parameter A(20) of Ta-73, (7)4W, and Au-79 ions after L-3 subshell ionization by electron impact has been determined experimentally and theoretically in the wide energy range (1.02-10.2)E-L3, where E-L3 is the L-3 ionization threshold. The A(20) values have been deduced from measurements of the Ll (L-3 -> M-1), L alpha(2) (L-3 -> M-4), and L alpha(1) (L-3 -> M-5) x-ray angular distributions using thin targets. The beam energies have been selected above the threshold energy of each L subshell in order to also investigate the influence of the Coster-Kronig transitions on the anisotropy of x-ray emission. The results provide a clear indication of alignment and agree with calculations carried out within the plane-wave Born approximation up to about 6E(L3), but an unpredicted inversion in the sign of A(20) is observed above this energy.
