It has been shown that the orbital magnetic moments of Co clusters can be exceptionally large on a platinum substrate . Together with a strong induced spin-orbit-coupling this leads to a high magnetic anisotropy.
We examine the magnetic moments of transition metal elements in small, mass selected alloy clusters on ferromagnetic substrates with the method of X-ray circular magnetic dichroism (XMCD). The measurements are performed at the storage ring of the synchrotron radiation source Bessy II in Berlin. Starting with CoxPty clusters we proceeded with the investigation of CoxPdy clusters. We will classify the results in the light of the previous measurements also including pure Cox clusters as a reference.
