We combine a bright 10 kHz high-order harmonic generation light source with an exchange scattering-based spin detector to investigate ultrafast magnetization dynamics in thin Co films. We map the spin-resolved band structure dynamics over the full valence band energy during the ultrafast demagnetization process following photo-excitation with a 1.57 eV pump pulse. We observe a >50% quenching of the spin polarization within the first 50 fs after the optical excitation, which is simultaneously occurring over the whole energy range. This finding gives strong evidence that the initial ultrafast demagnetization dynamics of the valence band in thin Co films is dominated by spin-mixing processes. A reduction of the exchange splitting, as expected in the Stoner model, is not observed.
