Resonant photoemission of Ga1-xMnxAs at the Mn L edge

  • Ga1-xMnxAs, x=0.043, has been grown ex situ on GaAs(100) by low-temperature molecular-beam epitaxy. On the reprepared p(1x1) surface, resonant photoemission of the valence band shows a 20-fold enhancement of the Mn 3d contribution at the L-3 edge. The difference spectrum is similar to our previously obtained resonant photoemission at the Mn M edge, in particular a strong satellite appears and no clear Fermi edge ruling out strong Mn 3d weight at the valence-band maximum. The x-ray absorption lineshape differs from previous publications. Our calculation based on a configuration-interaction cluster model reproduces the x-ray absorption and the L-3 on-resonance photoemission spectrum for model parameters Delta, U-dd, and (pdsigma) consistent with our previous work and shows the same spectral shape on and off resonance thus rendering resonant photoemission measured at the L-3 edge representative of the Mn 3d contribution. At the same time, the results are more bulk sensitive due to a probing depth about twice as large as for photoemissionGa1-xMnxAs, x=0.043, has been grown ex situ on GaAs(100) by low-temperature molecular-beam epitaxy.
