Electronic and Magnetic Properties of the Fe(110) Surface and its Oxides

E. Vescovo
(NSLS, Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, USA) ABSTRACT Recent years have seen a great development in the research on magnetic thin films and multi-layers, due to potential technical applications in magnetic devices such as magnetic memories and sensors. Various unusual magnetic phenomena with no counterpart in bulk materials result from the 2-dimensional film geometry, as for example, magnetic size effects and magnetic couplings in multi-layers. Spin- and angular-resolved photoemission is well suited to investigate the magnetic properties of ultra-thin films. Applications of this technique will be illustrated in relation to three different aspects of the magnetism of Fe(110) ultra-thin films: i) the spin-polarized electronic structure of the Fe(110) surface; ii) the reorientation of the magnetization between the two in-plane high-symmetry directions ([001] vs. [110]); iii) the magnetic properties of the Fe-Oxide/Fe(110) bilayer.
