Gadolinium overlayers on Ni(111) have been studied by angle resolved photoemission, angle resolved AES, LEED, and RHEED. We have observed pronounced interdiffusion of nickel with the gadolinium overlayer at temperatures as low as 150 K. This is in marked contrast with gadolinium overlayers on Cu(100) where substantial interdiffusion is not observed until 360 K, but is consistent with studies of ytterbium on nickel. [A.

Linear-dichroism studies of thin Dy overlayers on Ni(110) and Cu(110) substrates.

This paper presents polarisation-, temperature-, and thickness-dependent x-ray-absorption measurements on extremely thin Dy overlayers, and deduces that the nature of the dichroic effects is predominantly electrostatic.

Influence on the magnetoresistance of a spin valve due to the insertion of an ultrathin Gd layer in the free layer

The effect of inserting an ultrathin Gd layer (1–2 nm) in the free layer of a Permalloy-based spin valve has been investigated. In the current in-plane configuration, samples with Gd show a reduced

Localization and screening in GdNi alloy films

Gd/Ni compounds with different Gd concentration have been investigated with constant initial state spectroscopy (CIS) of photoemission utilizing the light of synchrotron radiation. The photoemission

Efficient and Robust Metallic Nanowire Foams for Deep Submicrometer Particulate Filtration.

The realization of efficient particulate filters using nanowire-based low-density metal foams which combine extremely large surface areas with excellent mechanical properties are reported, which are promising filters for combating COVID-19 and other types of airborne particulates.

Magnetic coupling in Gd/Ni bilayers

Layered thin films consisting of rare earth materials and magnetic transition metals reveal a variety of magnetic properties due to their complex coupling interactions. The Gd/Ni system adds its own
