Spin-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy of Fe3O4-revisited
Journal of Physics-Condensed Matter 20(14): 142201
Recently Tobin et al (2007 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 19 315218) reported on the spin-resolved photoemission study of Fe3O4(001) films, claiming magnetite being a case against half-metallicity. In the present communication we re-examine recent spin-resolved photoemission experiments on Fe3O4 and explain why their criticism is unfounded.
