Abstract

We evaluate the possibility of using dichroic electron energy loss spectroscopy (DEELS) as an alternative to x‐ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). It is well known that electron energy loss spectroscopy and x‐ray absorption spectroscopy are highly analogous, providing similar information. A simple semiclassical model suggests that DEELS might have a magnetic sensitivity similar to that of XMCD. This sensitivity will be reduced, however, by multiple scattering of the probe electron before and after the energy loss event. Thus it ...
