Abstract [en]

The relation between the electronic structure of thin film nanosandwiches and bulk alloys has been investigated by means of first-principles electronic structure theory. The spin magnetization, layered projected spectral properties, and interface core-level shifts of Cu, Ni, Co, and Fe systems have been calculated. In order to compare thin films to bulk alloys, systems with equal average nearest-neighbor coordination have been compared. We find that the spin magnetization and interface core level shifts are closely related to bulk with the exception of the core level shifts in the Fe/Cu multilayers, which are more sensitive to the specific structure of the thin film geometry. The discrepancy is discussed in terms of interacting interface states in the Cu spacer. The experimental possibility of detecting embedded monolayers is also investigated. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
