Abstract

The atomic and magnetic structure of surfaces and interfaces can be determined by angle-scanned resonant x-ray photoelectron diffraction. For the case of magnetized nickel the resonant L2 excitation with circularly polarized light yields electrons with a dichroic signature from which the dipolar part may be retrieved. The dichroic dipoles in the electron emission patterns rotate by distinct angles, which indicates different electron source waves with angular momenta parallel or antiparallel to those of the photons. For precise determination of the magnetization direction, the asymmetry between electron diffraction patterns as excited by left and right circularly polarized light has to be used.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
