Emission of Spin-Polarized Electrons to Study Surface Magnetism and Particle-Surface Interaction
Ion-induced, angle and energy resolved, spin-polarized electron emission spectroscopy (SPEES) has been used to probe the electron spin polarization (ESP) at the surface of Ni(110) picture-frame single crystals. The energy distribution of the emitted electrons, which includes spin-polarized Auger electrons, is significantly different from that of electron-induced secondary electrons and contains fundamental information on the local surface magnetic structure of Ni(110) and on particle-surface interaction mechanisms.
