Abstract

The experimental X-ray absorption data on the recently prepared magnetic arsenides RCo2As2 (R = rare earth) are provided. The oxidation state of rare-earth ions is explored by means of the X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy. Ce and Eu exhibit the intermediate valence state. The rare-earth valence instability sensitive to external perturbations opens the way for the influencing the magnetic state of RCo2As2 compounds.
