Abstract

We have performed photoelectron emission microscopy measurements with hard X-rays (HX-PEEM) and have shown that HX-PEEM has a spatial resolution higher than 106nm for observing the sample surface and can detect signals from a Au layer buried under a 50-nm-thick Co layer. These results mean that HX-PEEM has a probing depth one order of magnitude deeper than that of PEEM with soft X-rays. This deeper probing depth with HX-PEEM provides a new opportunity to investigate electronic and/or magnetic structures of buried layers under a thick overlayer. The notable advantages and potential applications of HX-PEEM are discussed.
