Electronic structure of sputter-deposited alloy films: application to the Fe-Cu-Ag system.

Kudrnovsky J., Bose S.K., Andersen O.K.

The authors discuss the electronic structure of the FCC phase of sputter-deposited Fe-Cu-Ag ternary alloy films and determine theoretically their X-ray photoelectron spectra using the tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital method and the coherent potential approximation. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental data.
