Title: Organic Thin Film Magnet of Nickel-Tetracyanoethylene

Abstract

Hybrid organic-inorganic materials consisting of a transition metal and an organic compound, TCNE form a unique class of organic magnets denoted by M(TCNE){sub x}(where M = transition metals, and TCNE = tetracyanoethylene). The organic thin film magnet of nickel-tetracyanoethylene, Ni(TCNE){sub x} is deposited on sputtered clean gold substrate using the physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique under ultra high vacuum (UHV) conditions at room temperature. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) has been used to investigate chemical and electronic properties of Ni(TCNE){sub x} film. XPS derived film thickness and stoichiometry are found to be 6 nm and 1:2 ratio between Ni and TCNE resulting Ni(TCNE){sub 2} film, respectively. In addition, XPS results do not show any signature of the presence of pure metallic Ni or Ni-clustering in the Ni(TCNE){sub x} film.
