Ultra high vacuum scanning tunneling microscopy to study thin film growth
An ultra high vacuum chamber was constructed to study thin film growth using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). The sample stage is specially designed so that samples can be transferred in situ among various film preparation ...
Ferromagnetism of novel ultrathin films and multilayers: A study of Ru/C(0001) and Fe/Mn/Fe/Pd(100) using magneto-optic Kerr effect and spin-sensitive electron spectroscopies
The possibility of the existence of ferromagnetic order in Ru monolayers on the C(0001) graphite surface is studied using electron induced spin-polarized secondary electron emission (SPSEE). Below a surface Curie temperature ...
Magnetic and critical behavior of thin terbium(0001)/tungsten(110) films studied by electron capture spectroscopy (ECS)
Epitaxial films of hcp Tb(0001) on bcc W(110) substrates are prepared and their geometric, electronic and magnetic properties are studied. The atomic flatness and cleanness and the single-crystalline state of the W(110) ...
Surface magnetic order of ultra thin epitaxial vanadium films on silver
Vanadium ultra-thin (1-7 monolayers) films are deposited epitaxially on well-defined single crystalline Ag(100) substrate. The topmost layers of the films are studied by electron capture spectroscopy(ECS). ECS is a ...
Surface magnetism study of nickel(110) and platinum-manganese-antimony using spin polarized electron emission spectroscopy (SPEES)
A spin polarized electron emission spectroscopy (SPEES) study of several ferromagnetic samples has been performed. SPEES studies involve the energy- and spin-analysis of electrons emitted normal to the surface of a sample ...
Spin-polarized electron emission spectroscopy (SPEES): A new and novel technique in surface science and ferromagnetism
A new technique, Spin-Polarized Electron Emission Spectroscopy (SPEES), capable of investigating surface magnetism, has been successfully developed. SPEES allows us to energy- and spin-analyze electrons emitted during the ...
