Abstract

Electron-excited appearance potential spectroscopy (APS) is used to investigate unoccupied electronic states in solids and at surfaces. The technique relies on the detection of the rate of core hole formation as a function of the energy of the incident primary electrons. This paper investigates the spin-dependent densities of empty electronic states in iron and nickel by spin-resolved soft X-ray APS. Model calculations using spin- and angular-momentum resolved densities of states with appropriate weighting are in good agreement with the experimental data.
