Introduction The surface magnetization of Ni played a stimulating role in surface and thin film magnetism, since Liebermel ul.[l] discussed the possibility of a nonmagnetic 'dead layer' in the topmost Ni layer. Some theoretical calculations showed that this phenomenon was an experimental artifact due to the incorporation of H into Ni layers Furthermore… CONTINUE READING
