Photoemission study of the 5f localization in the thin films of Pu
Thin polycrystalline films of Pu were investigated by X-ray and ultra-violet photoelectron spectroscopies. The films were deposited on Polycrystalline AL, and the electronic structure as a function of overlayer thickness and overlayer-substrate interactions was studied. For decreasing Pu layer thickness, we found a pronounced tendency for 5f localization, and both core level and valence band spectra of monolayer Pu show more similarities with Am metal than with alpha-Pu metal.
