Abstract [en]

The effect of capping a dilute assembly of nanoscale mass-selected Fe clusters with a Co thin film has been studied using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). The clusters, containing around 400 atoms, were deposited in situ from a gas-aggregation source onto highly oriented pyrolytic graphite. The exposed clusters possess magnetic moments that are enhanced compared to the bulk, by around 4% for m(spin) and around 75% for m(orb). In addition, a surface core level shifted component is observed in the L-3.2 XMCD spectrum. Upon adding the Co layer, the surface component disappears, m(orb) is decreased for the Fe clusters, and m(spin) increases. The exposed clusters are magnetically isotropic but a strong in-plans anisotropy is observed after depositing the Co overlayer. We attribute this to the shape of the Co islands in which the Fe clusters are embedded.
