Abstract [en]

Element-specific magnetic properties of epitaxial Co(2)Fe(x)Mn(1-x)Si/MgO(100) Heusler films prepared by laser ablation are measured by circular dichroism in x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XMCD). Surface and bulk magnetization of the 100-nm-thick films are equal as tested by comparing the total electron yield and transmission measurements and follow the generalized Slater-Pauling rule. For Co(2)FeSi, the large magnetization of 6 mu(B) per formula unit indicates half-metallic behavior. Calculations using the local spin density approximation (LDA) result in a half-metallic band structure for this compound when an additional electron-electron-correlation correction (LDA + U) is considered. Simulated XMCD spectra using the LDA and LDA + U approaches are compared to the experimental spectra. While the electron-electron Coulomb correlation has only a small effect on the observable XMCD spectra, the calculations predict that it will cause a significant change in the x-ray magnetic linear dichroism (XMLD).
