CO Chemisorption on Ni(110): Effect on Surface Magnetism



C Feigerle, A Seiler, J Pena, Robert Celotta, Daniel T. Pierce


The effect of CO chemisorption on the surface magnetism and unfilled electronic structure of Ni(110) is investigated by spin-polarized inverse-photoemission spectroscopy. A saturation in the reduction of the unfilled minority-spin d density of states is observed near 0.5-monolayer CO coverage and attributed to a reduction in the Ni-atom magnetic moments. Transitions into the CO π* band are also observed with an intensity that increases nearly linearly with coverage. No transference of spin polarization from the Ni substrate to the CO π* is found.
