Photon emission from sputtered nickel atoms as a function of target temperature near the Curie point

The photon emission from sputtered and excited Ni atoms was measured over the target temperature range including the ferromagnetic-paramagnetic transition point. It was found, that ion induced desorption of an adsorbed layer increases in the vicinity of the Curie point. It is also shown that excitation events and ionic desorption of adsorbates are strongly correlated. The temperature dependence of photon emission and ionic desorption indicate that points of surface and bulk magnetic transitions are identic.
