Xu, Y B, Greig, D, Seddon, E A, Cornelius, S and Matthew, J A D (1999) Evidence for polarised boron in Co-B and Fe-B alloys. IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MAGNETICS. pp. 3427-3429. ISSN 0018-9464Full text available as:
By exploiting the tunability of synchrotron radiation in measurements of spin-resolved photoemission it has proved possible to obtain information on the polarisation of the valence electrons of Co-B and Fe-B amorphous magnetic alloys, Both the spin-integrated and spin-resolved energy distribution curves show a marked dependence on photon energy indicating that the p states of boron hybridise with the d states of the transition metals giving rise to mixed states in the binding energy range 1 to 5 eV, The observed polarisation and spin-resolved densities of states imply that in the above restricted energy range there is a net negative polarisation of the boron states.
