Changes in the Fermi surface at the magnetization reorientation transition in Fe/Cu(100)
We present a study of the evolution of the valence band structure of Fe/Cu(100) as a function of Fe coverage in the 0-12 monolayer range. Angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy was used to probe the valence electronic structure and to extract Fermi surface contours as a function of increasing Fe coverage. The first few monolayers show Fe-induced densities of states that are significantly different from those in thicker films. At 5 ML, distinct changes occur in the Fermi surface, where a magnetization reorientation transition has been observed previously. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
