Abstract
The first spin-polarized EXAFS of an anti-ferromagnetically coupled system using Kβ detection is reported. The Kβ SPEXAFS effect is much larger than the K-edge XMCD SPEXAFS, because of the greater spin polarization of the excited photoelectrons. This internally referenced technique is suited for antiferromagnetically coupled systems, as well as ferromagnetic and paramagnetic systems.
