Abstract

We have investigated the molecular orientation and magnetic properties of vanadyl phthalocyanine (VOPc) deposited on ferromagnetic Fe, Co, and Ni films, which were epitaxially grown on Cu(001) using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism. The results reveal that the VOPc framework lies flat on the surfaces with oxygen-up configurations. The spin of the central V atoms in VOPc is antiferromagnetically coupled with those of Fe or Co atoms in the ferromagnetic surface. In contrast, the magnetic coupling between V and Ni is not effective, exhibiting simple paramagnetism of VOPc.
