The A2 alignment parameter of the L3 subshell of gold has been determined by measuring the angular distribution of the L l/Lgamma intensity ratio following proton impact ionisation in the 0.25-0.60 MeV energy range. The experimental results make it clear that the minimum of the alignment parameter at low energies found earlier for He+ impact also exists in the case of proton impact ionisation.
