We study the directional dichroic absorption spectra in the x-ray region in a polar ferrimagnet GaFeO_3. The directional dichroism on the absorption spectra at the Fe pre-K-edge arises from the E1-E2 interference process through the hybridization between the 4p and 3d states in the noncentrosymmetric environment of Fe atoms. We perform a microscopic calculation of the spectra on a model of FeO_6 with reasonable parameter values for Coulomb interaction and hybridizations. We obtain the…
