The unoccupied electronic structure of the organic-based magnet V(TCNE)x (TCNE = tetracyanoethylene, x~2) has been studied with near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) and with photoelectron spectroscopy (PES). By studying V(TCNE)x upon sodium-doping, the electron-accepting state, i.e. the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of V(TCNE)x was shown mainly to be localized on (TCNE)--units in contrast to the hole-accepting state, i.e. the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO), which previously was assigned primarily to be V(3d)-derived. This study also showed that there are trap states for electron transport located below the (TCNE)2- level, likely leading to decreased electron mobility.
