Title: Temperature Dependent X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism in Er2Fe17

Abstract

The x-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectra of the erbium L{sub 2} and L{sub 3} edges in Er{sub 2}Fe{sub 17} have been investigated experimentally as a function of temperature and theoretically using first principles electronic structure calculations. The spectral changes with temperature are rather dramatic and are related to the interplay between the Fe-3d and the Er-4f orbitals causing spin polarization of the 5d states.
