Recently Tobin et al (2007 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 19 315218) reported on the spin-resolved photoemission study of Fe3O4(001) films, claiming magnetite being a case against half-metallicity. In the present communication we re-examine recent spin-resolved photoemission experiments on Fe3O4 and explain why their criticism is unfounded. The materials class(More)
We present a study on the structural, magnetic, and optical properties, as well as the electronic structure of Co-doped ZnO films prepared by magnetron sputtering. Magnetization measurements performed at different temperatures indicate ferromagnetic and paramagnetic behavior for the samples prepared at oxygen-poor conditions whereas the samples prepared at(More)
We report on angle-resolved photoemission studies of the electronic pi states of high-quality epitaxial graphene layers on a Ni(111) surface. In this system the electron binding energy of the pi states shows a strong dependence on the magnetization reversal of the Ni film. The observed extraordinarily large energy shift up to 225 meV of the graphene-derived(More)
This paper presents our work on the investigation of the surface structure and the electronic and magnetic properties of the graphene layer on the lattice-matched surface of a ferromagnetic material, Ni(111). Scanning tunneling microscopy imaging shows that perfectly ordered epitaxial graphene layers can be prepared by elevated temperature decomposition of(More)
We present a detailed study of the spin-dependent electronic structure of thin epitaxial magnetite films of different crystallographic orientations. Using spin- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy at room temperature, we determine for epitaxial Fe(3)O(4)(111) films a maximum spin polarization value of -(80 ± 5)% near E(F). The spin-resolved(More)
The electronic structure and magnetic properties of the graphene/Fe/Ni(111) system were investigated via combination of the density functional theory calculations and electron-spectroscopy methods. This system was prepared via intercalation of thin Fe layers (1 ML) underneath graphene on Ni(111) and its inert properties were verified by means of(More)
The practical difficulties to use graphene in microelectronics and optoelectronics is that the available methods to grow graphene are not easily integrated in the mainstream technologies. A growth method that could overcome at least some of these problems is chemical vapour deposition (CVD) of graphene directly on semiconducting (Si or Ge) substrates. Here(More)
The degrees of charge localization in the highest occupied and lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (HOMO and LUMO) of the bacterial surface layer protein of Bacillus sphaericus NCTC 9602 were studied by resonant photoemission. In agreement with a charge transport hopping mechanism that involves torsional motions of the peptide backbone, the lifetime of(More)
We report on an application of a simultaneous perturbation stochastic approximation (SPSA) algorithm to filtering systematic noise (SN) with nonzero mean value in photoemission data. In our analysis, we have used a series of 50 single-scan photoemission spectra of W(110) surface where different SNs were added. It was found that the SPSA-evaluated spectrum(More)
