A novel nonpolar structure of 2 monolayer (ML) thick ZnO(0001) films grown on Ag(111) has been revealed, using surface x-ray diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy. Zn and O atoms are arranged in planar sheets like in the hexagonal boron-nitride prototype structure. The observed depolarization is accompanied by a significant lateral 1.6% expansion of(More)
The electronic surface states on Mo(110) have been investigated using time-of-flight momentum microscopy with synchrotron radiation (hν=35 eV). This novel angle-resolved photoemission approach yields a simultaneous acquisition of the E-vs-k spectral function in the full surface Brillouin zone and several eV energy interval. (kx,ky,EB)-maps with 3.4 Å(-1)(More)
Since the original work by Mott, the low efficiency of electron spin polarimeters, remaining orders of magnitude behind optical polarimeters, has prohibited many fundamental experiments. Here we report a solution to this problem using a novel concept of multichannel spin-polarization analysis that provides a stunning increase in efficiency by 4 orders of(More)
We present a spin resolving "momentum microscope" for the high resolution imaging of the momentum distribution of photoelectrons. Measurements of the band structure of a Au(111) single crystal surface demonstrate an energy resolution of ΔE=12 meV and a momentum resolution of Δk∥=0.0049 Å(-1), measured at the line-width of the spin-orbit split Shockley(More)
Using a photoelectron emission microscope (PEEM), we demonstrate spin-resolved electron spectroscopic imaging of ultrathin magnetic Co films grown on Cu(100). The spin-filter, based on the spin-dependent reflection of low energy electrons from a W(100) crystal, is attached to an aberration corrected electrostatic energy analyzer coupled to an electrostatic(More)
As Stern-Gerlach type spin filters do not work with electrons, spin analysis of electron beams is accomplished by spin-dependent scattering processes based on spin-orbit or exchange interaction. Existing polarimeters are single-channel devices characterized by an inherently low figure of merit (FoM) of typically 10⁻⁴-10⁻³. This single-channel approach is not(More)
Surface x-ray diffraction in combination with scanning tunneling microscopy and molecular dynamics calculations provide first quantitative evidence for unusually large relaxations in nanometer-sized Co islands deposited on Cu(001) at 170 K. These lead to sharply reduced interatomic Co distances as low as 2.36 A as compared to bulk Co (2.51 A) involving low(More)
Hybridization-related modifications of the first metal layer of a metal-organic interface are difficult to access experimentally and have been largely neglected so far. Here, we study the influence of specific chemical bonds (as formed by the organic molecules CuPc and PTCDA) on a Pb-Ag surface alloy. We find that delocalized van der Waals or weak chemical(More)
Surface x-ray diffraction experiments reveal that, in cobalt-doped ZnO films two to five monolayers thick, Wurtzite-type CoO nanocrystals are coherently embedded within a hexagonal boron-nitride- (h-BN)-type ZnO matrix, supporting the model of a phase separation. First-principles calculations confirm that, in contrast with ZnO, the formation of h-BN-type(More)
