Grazing-Incidence X-Ray Magnetic Scattering Studies of UO(2)(001) Surfaces
This paper describes grazing-incidence, X-ray resonant magnetic scattering measurements performed on a UO(2)(001) surface at and below the bulk Néel temperature of minus 30 K. Scattering was observed associated with the (010) magnetic truncation rod. The scattering exhibits the expected resonance as a function of incident photon energy, and is observed to vanish at T(N) on heating. The L-dependence of the observed scattering exhibits the characteristic Vineyard-profile as the angle of incidence is swept through the critical angle. Based on the refractive index, the penetration depth of the grazing-incidence measurements was estimated and reported here to be approximately 50 angstroms.
