Interpretation of x-ray-absorption dichroism experiments

Strange, Paul, Gyorffy, Balazs L. (1995) Interpretation of x-ray-absorption dichroism experiments. Physical Review B: Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, 52 (18). R13091-R13094. ISSN 0163-1829. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevB.52.R13091) (KAR id:50034)


A rule is derived to use x-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectra to extract the magnetic moment of the conduction-band states with j= l -1/2 separately from those with j= l + 1/2 as a function of energy. This quantity is straightforward to determine from the electronic band structure. The rule is illustrated with an application to pure iron and to the random substitutional alloy Fe_{80}CO_{20}.
