We study the spin-orbit interaction within excited states of krypton by extending R-Matrix with time-dependence theory to include spin-orbit effects. We study an attosecond pump-probe scheme where we produce an autoionising state with the probe pulse. We observe dynamics through the subsequent decay of the autoionising state, from which we find a time-dependent signal when spin-orbit interactions are included. We examine the effect of the relative polarisation of the pulses, enabling an interpretation of the dynamics in terms of the quantum number m of the core of the excited krypton atom.
