Fig. 31: Comparison between the Pd L3 edge of Pd(2AL)/Fe(8AL) and Pd(2AL)/Co(8AL) multilayers. The fine structure after the white line (3172-3200 eV), which is clearly different for the two samples, depends on the local crystallographic structure around the Pd atoms. The fine structure of the Pd L3-edge in the Pd/Co sample is typical for an fcc local structure.
