Ultrathin Co films on flat and stepped Cu(111) surfaces: Determination of per atom orbital and spin moments

Abstract
We have used the x-ray magnetic circular dichroism technique to characterize ultrathin Co films deposited on flat and vicinal Cu(111) single crystal surfaces. All films were prepared and characterized in situ, in ultrahigh vacuum. Similar to other investigators we report a 40% increase of the ratio m(l)/m(s) (orbital to spin moment) of ultrathin Co on both flat and vicinal Cu(111). In addition, an apparently correlated enhancement of both the orbital and spin moments is observed for Co on vicinal Cu(111). This finding is in contrast to what has earlier been reported for a similar system, Co on vicinal Cu(100). (C) 2002 American Institute of Physics.
