CROPPER, M.D. and BROWN, D., 2007. The ordered Heusler alloy Pd2MnIn investigated by photoelectron spectroscopy. Journal of Physics - Condensed Matter, 19 (17), article 176217, 8pp.
The full, ordered, antiferromagnetic Heusler alloy Pd2MnIn has been
investigated using synchrotron radiation photoelectron spectroscopy. The Pd
4d Cooper minimum at 130 eV photon energy and the Mn 3p to 3d resonance
at 49.5 eV photon energy have been used to determine the partial spectral
weights of the Pd 4d and Mn 3d derived states. These partial spectral weights
are consistent with published partial density of states calculated using the
augmented spherical wave method. A quantitative fit of the resonant profile
yielded an asymmetry parameter of 1.6 ± 0.4, indicating delocalization of the
filled Mn 3d states.
